The Scot was given his marching orders during a face-to-face meeting with the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at United’s Carrington training ground on Tuesday at 7.40am, with Moyes having lasted just 10 months into his six-year deal.
Moyes was appointed last summer to take over from Fergie on the latter’s own personal recommendation and now it has even emerged in the Sun that the knight tried everything within his powers to save the man who he had helped get the job from being axed from the role.
Ferguson took up a role on the United board after stepping down as manager following 26 years in charge of the Premier League giants at the end of the previous campaign and it has now emerged that he stayed loyal to his compatriot right to the very end, although ultimately there was nothing he could do prevent Moyes’s dismissal.
