Moyes9Everton boss David Moyes has staked his claim to the Old Trafford hotseat by raging over the amount of time added to his side’s defeat to Norwich.

Following the loss, which leaves Everton six points adrift of Tottenham in the race for Champions League qualification, Moyes was apoplectic at referee Lee Mason.

“I can’t understand why he plays three minutes 20 for the goal,” Moyes said. “If you add on three minutes added time for 45 minutes, I think 20 seconds sounds a big percentage to add on top of that. He’s got discretion to do what he likes; I disagree with his discretion today.”

Moyes has been touted as a possible candidate to take over from Sir Alex Ferguson when the United manager finally retires.

Reports that Moyes was seen in Manchester on the Sunday, browsing winter coats of a suspicious resemblance to Ferguson’s, could not be confirmed.
