Ferguson favours Moyes ahead of Guardiola for Man Utd job

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson sees Everton manager David Moyes as his eventual successor. The Sunday Express says Ferguson is backing Moyes as the preferred choice for his successor at Old Trafford - even though Pep Guardiola wants the job.

Sir Alex feels Everton manager Moyes is better suited at guiding Manchester United in the long term. And the Scot feels current Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho should be considered ahead of Guardiola.

A source close to one of the United senior players revealed: "The talk about Manchester United appointing Guardiola is a little premature.

"He actually has two preferred choices - David Moyes and Jose Mourinho.

"Moyes and Fergie are close and Fergie begrudgingly admires how Moyes has 'outfoxed' him and many other teams over the years.

"Fergie admires Jose greatly but there are concerns that Jose's manner and media links could make him become bigger than the club."
