Rumours are constantly flying around that Moyes is Ferguson’s preferred choice to replace him at Old Trafford, and this latest statement will no doubt add fuel to those fires.
Ferguson said: “At this moment, there are maybe half a dozen managers doing well in the Premier League. Only half a dozen because all the rest of them are fighting for their lives.
“Some are doing great jobs with the resources they have and David Moyes has been unbelievable.
“I put him in the top six because what he’s done at Everton has been quite miraculous.”
