Everton boss Moyes unlikely to get Manchester United job

Published 7 Comments

Everton boss David Moyes is unlikely to be offered the opportunity to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson as the manager of Manchester United due to his lack of experience in European football, it has been claimed.

Ferguson has yet to divulge publicly when he will bring an end to his illustrious career with Manchester United, but speculation about his successor at Old Trafford continues as he closes in on a 13th Premier Lague title.

According to, Ferguson will play a prominent role in the appointment of his replacement and, although the 71-year-old admires Moyes' abilities, the Everton manager is likely to be discounted for the position because he has not coached often enough in continental competition.

Moyes is held in high regard for the work he has done at Goodison Park, but only one sojourn in the Champions League, during which Everton were knocked out qualifiers, means his CV does not compare to more distinguished candidates.

Ferguson is reported to have earmarked both Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho as potential future Manchester United managers, although the former's agreement to join Bayern Munich will rule him out of a move to Old Trafford any time soon., meanwhile, claim the Manchester United board have doubts over the suitability of Mourinho, with longevity - surely a key factor any future appointment - not something associated with the current Real Madrid man.
