Sir Alex Ferguson reveals his choice for Manchester United permanent manager

Published

Sir Alex Ferguson is widely considered as the greatest manager in the history of Manchester United and arguably the greatest manager that the game has ever seen. After his retirement in 2013, the English club has struggled to return to the apex of the game.

The club has since then fired three managers; David Moyes, Louis Van Gaal, and Jose Mourinho while having former players Ryan Giggs and Ole Solskjaer take charge as caretaker manager. The club is actively looking for a top manager to take charge after this season and Sir Alex has given his input.

Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson is backing the full-time appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to the Independent. The Norwiegn manager also has the support of the players and many members of staff to get the job on a permanent basis.

Solskjaer has restored the feel-good factor back at Old Trafford having won all of his first seven games in charge. Whilst Mauricio Pochettino remains first-choice, Solskjaer is putting together a strong case for taking the United job full-time.

The Red Devils have made huge strides towards recovery under the coach who is on loan from Molde FK. Along with achieving results, the 45-year-old has also managed to see his side produce some impressive football. He has turned heads with the job that he has done so far and is now receiving the backing of Sir Alex.
Speaking about the input the former manager offers, Solskjaer told MEN: “We don’t speak weekly. I haven’t spoken to him many times. He has been in to visit us just once. The influence is more my 15 years under him. He is 77, it is not fair to him either is it?”

It is understood that finishing in the top-four or beating Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League round of 16 could prove crucial in Solskjaer earning the job full-time. He has helped United to within just three points of the top four despite Jose Mourinho’s disastrous start to the season. The former Champions League winner is also gearing his side up to face PSG in the Champions League.
Whilst this appeared a daunting prospect when the draw was made, United will now be full of confidence following their mini-revival.
