EPL: What Ferguson did after Mourinho was sacked as Manchester United manager

Legendary Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, was called in by the club’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, to help with a replacement after Jose Mourinho was sacked last Tuesday.

According to the UK Sun, Ferguson brokered the deal for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, to make a sensational return as interim boss.

The Scot also pulled the strings behind the scenes, for the return of his former assistant Mike Phelan, 56, as Solskjaer’s No 2.

Woodward was desperate to get it right following the failures of David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Mourinho.

So he turned to Ferguson, who has been a club director since retiring in 2013, as he prepared to sack Mourinho in the wake of the 3-1 loss at Liverpool.
