Sir Alex Ferguson not involved in United’s search for Solskjaer successor

It has been claimed that Sir Alex Ferguson will have no involvement in Manchester United’s search for a new manager.

ESPN understands football director John Murtough and technical director Darren Fletcher have both been given the responsibility of identifying and assessing candidates for the position.

It was decided on Sunday that United would part ways with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a shocking run of results. The club announced that they would hire a manager on an interim basis before striking a deal with a permanent manager.

There has been constant speculation about Mauricio Pochettino and the MEN reckon he’d come straight away, so what would be the point in hiring someone else for the remainder of the season?

Obviously, it comes down to who United really want and you can never be too sure when Ed Woodward is sitting in on meetings offering his zero knowledge on all things football.

United are searching for their fifth permanent manager since Ferguson’s retirement in 2013 and Woodward has been responsible for all sackings. You don’t need me to explain why he should be the one without involvement in talks over the next manager – not just Fergie.

Should Ferguson be asked who he thinks is the right man for the job? Let us know in the comments section.

The greatest manager of all-time has retired so let him alone to enjoy that.

He reportedly had involvement in bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back, but let’s leave it at that, shall we?

I heard Kenny Cunningham on Irish television at the weekend suggest Fergie would come out of retirement and manage the side for the rest of the season. Shocking stuff.
