David Moyes has been axed by Manchester United and now attention turns to the important questions—like what is going to happen to the "Chosen One" banner that adorned Old Trafford during the Scot's tenure?

Stretford End Flags made the design, and they kept it up even when, in the latter days of Moyes' tenure, there were calls to take it down.

Now, according to the BBC, the next destination for the banner could be the National Football Museum in Manchester:

It will be removed before Saturday's Premier League home match with Norwich.

Stretford End Flags, the group which had the banner made, is considering donating it to the National Football Museum in Manchester.

The banner was made as a reference to the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson, before retiring at the end of last season, chose Moyes as his successor.

All eyes will doubtless be on what flag fills the empty space it once occupied.
