Following yesterday’s two-nil loss to Everton sports writers in Britain have been speculating that Manchester United coach, David Moyes, will not be keeping his job for much longer.
None of the newspapers are reporting that Moyes has been sacked yet.
According to the BBC, the Daily Mail writes that he will be dismissed before the end of the season, while the Daily Telegraph says he has lost the support of club owners the Glazer family and is facing the sack.
The Sun and the Daily Mirror, meanwhile, report that the United board will sack him, but that it is unclear whether this will happen before the weekend’s game at home to Norwich.
‘David Moyes Could be sacked As Manchester United Manager In Next 24hrs’ screamed The Herald Scotland. Even Nigeria’s Punch headline that ‘Man Utd Silent On Possible Exit Of Moyes’ was quoted by the BBC.
However a United spokesperson would only confirm Moyes has not been sacked.
When pressed on whether the manager would leave before the end of the season, the spokesperson added, “we do not comment on speculation”.
