Theatre impresario and Phantom of the Opera Bill Kenwright has ruled out his club`s boss being the next manager at NUFC. Having eventually seen his patience with David Moyes pay off it looks like he isn`t in a hurry to let him for now. Kenwright said:

“How did David Moyes get linked with this job? I have started getting emails and texts and phone calls about this very thing and I wonder where it has all come from. I spoke to my good friend Philip Green earlier today and he was having dinner with Mike Ashley.

Mike came on the phone and I said: ‘Listen, do you know there’s rumours sweeping round Newcastle and Liverpool that you are after David? He said: ‘Listen Bill even if David was the greatest manager in the world – and I know you think he is – there’s no way on God’s earth we would ever do that kind of thing to Everton’. He [Ashley] is my friend and we are close. There is no truth in it whatsoever, not even a word of truth so you can put that one to bed.’
