Former Manchester United defender David May has been suspended from his punditry duties on the club's MUTV channel for saying David Moyes is "out of his depth", according to the Daily Mail.

May's comments were made on MUTV's post-match coverage of United's 2-0 defeat to Everton - a result which appears to have cost Moyes his job.

United have lost patience with Moyes and the club are preparing to sack him, sources have told ESPN.

May also appeared to suggest Moyes was "not tactically good enough" when responding to a caller's question, before being cut off by the show's presenter, Jim Rosenthal.

First-half goals from Leighton Baines and Kevin Mirallas were enough to see United slump to an 11th Premier League defeat of the campaign.

United have only a Europa League spot left to fight for in their four remaining games, and will miss out on the Champions League next season for the first time since 1995-96.

Moyes' side are currently six points behind sixth-placed Tottenham, who occupy the final Europa League berth.

May, 43, won two league titles, two FA Cups and the Champions League in his nine years at United between 1994 and 2003.
