London, Apr 23 (ANI): Everton boss David Moyes has rejected claims that he is likely to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United's next manager.
United is chasing a fourth successive Premier League title but there is speculation Ferguson, 68, may not be far off retirement.
Moyes is among several names linked with the post following his eight years at Everton.
"As far as I'm concerned this is a load of nonsense. What I will say is I think it will be a terrible day when Sir Alex does finish," The Sun quoted Moyes, as saying.
Earlier reports said that Ferguson wanted Moyes to succeed him at Old Trafford.
Ferguson, 68, is convinced that Moyes can provide the continuity that United craves for to keep them challenging for top honours.
Jose Mourinho, however, is the bookies favourite and enjoys a close relationship with Ferguson from his time as coach with Chelsea.
Ferguson knows fellow Glaswegian Moyes, 46, well and has constantly championed his achievements at Preston, and now Everton.
He also believes it is right to give a good British manager the chance to take one of the big jobs in England football. (ANI)
