Sir Alex Ferguson back at Manchester United’s training ground

Sir Alex Ferguson & Ole Gunnar

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is back at Red devil’s training ground for the first time in a long while.

The 77-year-old Scot returned to Carrington and met with former striker and current caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Saturday.

“He enjoyed his time at the training ground. He had a few nice chats with the staff and he encouraged us,” said Solskjaer.

Ferguson who did not attend any training sessions during David Moyes and Luis Van Gaal’s managerial times at the club but was later invited back by Jose Mourinho before suffering a brain hemorrhage last year.

Solskjaer has already recruited Mike Phelan, a former assistant to Ferguson to work with him along with Michael Carrick as part of the coaching staff.

Having won 38 titles during his 26-year spell at Manchester United, Ferguson remains the most successful manager in British football. He signed Solskjaer in 1996 from Molde and later made him a reserve team manager following his retirement in 2007.

“I had him for 15 years. He influenced me more in those 15 years than he’s done last week but I keep him informed,” Solskjaer, who won 6 Premier League trophies and two FA Cups at the club noted.

“He knows the staff are Manchester United through and through. He knows we are going to do whatever we can, up to the last second we are here, for the club.”
