Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will not be able to save David Moyes from getting sacked if the Glazer family choose to cut all ties with the former Everton boss.
Moyes has been under severe pressure during the last few months as the Scotsman has failed to improve his side’s poor form.
Many have tipped the 50-year-old to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season - with the likes of Carlo Ancelotti, Jurgen Klopp and Louis van Gaal having been linked with taking over the reins from Moyes.
Manchester United’s top brass are said to be split on whether Moyes should be sacked or given more time to try and resurrect an ageing side.
Red Devils director Ferguson, who himself named Moyes as his successor, is one of the few members of Manchester United’s boardroom who remain fully behind the man he appointed at the end of last season.
However reports suggest Ferguson will not be able to have a say on Moyes’ future as the decision will rest with Manchester United owners - the Glazer family.
Moyes will be hoping his side can get what would be a surprise victory against Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday, as a heavy defeat could cost the Scotsman his job.
