United silent on Moyes reports

LONDON - Manchester United says David Moyes has not been sacked as manager, but the club is refusing to comment on widespread British media reports that he is about to be fired.

A spokesperson from United told AFP in an email, "David Moyes has definitely not been sacked!"

However, when asked if he would leave before the end of the season, journalists were told: "We do not comment on speculation."

Several national newspapers claimed that United have decided to sack Moyes after a wretched debut campaign, while Sky Sports News declared that he could lose his job "within the next 24 hours".

Speculation about Moyes's future intensified following Monday's 2-0 loss at Everton, which condemned reigning champions United to their 11th defeat of the season and meant they could no longer qualify for the Champions League.

Moyes was the chosen successor of former United boss Alex Ferguson following his retirement at the end of last season.

But Moyes has endured a torrid first season at Old Trafford, with United falling to seventh place in the Premier League and being knocked out of both domestic cup competitions.

They reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, where they lost to holders Bayern Munich, but will not compete in the competition next season for the first time since 1995.
