It was a great news to hear about the return of former Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson to the club once again after a long time out. The former boss returned to the club training ground for the first time since suffering a brain haemorrhage. The former gaffer who marked 77 a day ago met with his former player and current United caretaker manager, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer at the club’s Carrington training ground on Saturday.
This is coming as a new development as Fergie never visited the club training ground under David Moyes, Louis Van Gaal but was invited during Mourinho’s reign at the club. His brain haemorrhage deterred him from making visit then but now that he is fully recovered, he visited the ground and it was to the delight of everyone at the club.
“He enjoyed his time at the training ground,” said Solskjaer.”He had a few nice chats with the staff and he encouraged us.”
United have won all three Premier League games since Solskjaer, 45, was appointed until the end of the season following Mourinho’s sacking on 18 December.
The current United setup has several of Fergie’s lieutenant in charge of the club. From the manager who was his former player to the assistant, Mike Phelan who was his former assistant too to Micheal Carrick who also played under Fergie, It was just a team that has Fergie written all over it. It will be of great note to know that Fergie gave Solskjaer his first managerial opportunity to manage United reserves after he retired from football in 2007.
