Ex Man United boss favourite to replace under-fire Newcastle manager

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has been tipped to replace Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew if he is to be sacked in the coming weeks, Daily Star reports.

The Magpies, despite a strong preseason and some shrewd transfers, sit bottom of the Premier League table with their latest result being a 1-0 loss to Stoke on Monday night.

And the Toon supporters have pushed for owner Mike Ashley to dismiss Pardew in their attempts to save the club from relegation.

Pardew said: “We’ll have some serious conversations because he doesn’t want to lose and neither do I.

“I’ll probably speak tomorrow or the next day because this team needs to win games. I have to turn it around.”

One of the favourites to take the Newcastle helm is ex Man United boss David Moyes, who is keen to return to management after being sacked by the Red Devils back in April.

The Scot is reportedly keen to take over the Magpies, even after their worst start to a season since 2003.

Moyes had a successful 11-year tenure in charge of Everton before last season’s calamity with Man United, which saw the Red Devils finish seventh in the Premier League.
