Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is scheduled to be the Red Devils’ representative for Wednesday’s Europa League final against Villarreal.
United and Villarreal are set to square off in Gdansk, Poland in a game that will prove vital in both side’s seasons.
Unai Emery’s Villarreal will be hoping to better their previous Europa League record, which currently sees them semi-finalists on three separate occasions.
Elsewhere, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United will be looking to lift their second Europa League trophy in what will be the Norweigan’s first major European title as a manager.
As the exciting game edges closer, news has reached fans that while Solskjaer will be looking to replicate the successes of his former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, the Scotsman is also set to play a key role.
Sir Alex Ferguson will be @ManUtd representative at the post-match medal ceremony when Aleksander Ceferin hands over the trophy. In 2017, Ed Woodward did it. Ceferin called Woodward a snake re Super League a few weeks ago. https://t.co/nSiif5aJjM via @BBCSport

According to journalist Simon Stone, Sir Alex Ferguson will be involved in the trophy ceremony.
Stone also suggests that UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has likely snubbed club vice-executive chairman Ed Woodward for his role in the recently scuppered European Super League.
