London - David Moyes says that while he's flattered by talk of his succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United his sole concern is to win trophies for Everton.

Ferguson is known to be an admirer of Moyes who cut his managerial teeth at Preston and has done well on a modest budget since taking over at Everton.

Ahead of his side's clash with United in next weekend's FA Cup semi-final Moyes told The News Of The World on Sunday: "I try not to take any notice but obviously stuff comes back to you.

"It is nice. But maybe it's Alex Ferguson having a different kind of mind games...to soften David Moyes up.

"That might be the case or it might not. But I would never be disloyal or disrespectful to my club.

"Yes, it's a nice thing. But was it not only a year ago that people were saying it was going to be Roy Keane or Mark Hughes or Martin O'Neill taking over from Sir Alex?

"I really enjoy this job and I'd like to win something for these supporters.

"A lot of supporters get fed up with managers being changed. Everton supporters have been really good to me and I'd like to give them something back. It would be a great way to cap the season."
