Sir Alex Ferguson: Legendary manager makes return to Manchester United working as consultant

Sir Alex Ferguson is back working for Manchester United as a consultant in a bid to restore the club’s glory days.

The former Red Devils boss played a part in hiring Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the return of his former assistant Mike Phelan after Jose Mourinho was sacked last week.

Sir Alex had a glittering managerial career which saw him win 25 major honours

And according to The Sun, ex-United player Solskjaer will plan regular contact with Ferguson which is something his predecessor chose not to do.

It is also understood former United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel wants to join the club as the director of football.

United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, who is determined to get things right after three managerial failures on his watch, turned to the legendary manager as he prepared to sack Mourinho following their 3-1 loss at Liverpool.

Ferguson, 77, who underwent surgery in May after suffering a brain haemorrhage, will not be employed in a full-time capacity however.
