Moyes dismisses United rumours

EVERTON boss David Moyes has dismissed talk that he could be about to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson as manager at Manchester United.

Speculation is growing that Ferguson could be about to call time on his career at Old Trafford with Moyes apparently in the frame to replace the Scot.

But in an interview with the Daily Record, Moyes described the rumours as “nonsense”.

“It was Mark Hughes, Steve Bruce and Roy Keane being mentioned not long ago.

“When my players are linked with clubs it annoys me. So I don’t want to go into any of it. But as far as I’m concerned this is a load of nonsense.

You may also want to watch:

“What I will say is I think it will be a terrible day when Sir Alex does finish. He is someone all the football managers look up to, they all respect him.

“Even when he’s fighting them, he still has the humility to have a drink with them at the end of the game.
