LONDON (AFP) - Manchester United said on Monday that David Moyes had not been sacked as manager, but refused to comment on widespread British media reports that he was about to be fired.

A spokesman from United told AFP in an email: "David Moyes has definitely not been sacked!"

However, when asked if he would leave before the end of the season, journalists were told: "We do not comment on speculation."

Several national newspapers claimed that United have decided to sack Moyes after a wretched debut campaign, while Sky Sports News declared that he could lose his job "within the next 24 hours".
