Ferguson wants Moyes to succeed him at Man U

London, Apr 21 (ANI): Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson wants Everton boss David 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.

But the United hierarchy, including the influential Sir Bobby Charlton, are not convinced, The Sun reports.

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)
