MANCHESTER United are refusing to comment on rumours that under-fire boss David Moyes is on the verge of being sacked.

The club is awash with rumours that the Glazer family and vice-president Ed Woodward are holding talks to decide if the man who took over from Sir Alex Ferguson should be given his marching orders.

The timing could not be more poignant coming, as it does, just 24 hours after Manchester United surrended meekly to Moyes' former team, Everton.

Insiders claim Red Devils' veteran Ryan Giggs is set to take temporary charge until the end of the season.

Moyes has been on the back foot all season and fans have started to ask if he is the right man to rebuild the team after a string of lacklustre results.

Despite that, Moyes always sought to remain upbeat.

After the latest defeat left his team 13 points off a Champions League position, he told MUTV: "We need to end the season on a high. We want to finish by winning all of our games. We'll do everything we possibly can to make that happen."
