Former Manchester United coach, Sir Alex Ferguson may be due for a return to the dug out if Louis Van Gaal is sacked as widely anticipated following a poor run this season.
However, his return will be in an assistant capacity to Ryan Giggs who will assume the role of Head coach at Manchester United.
According to MirrorSport, Sir Alex Ferguson will take up a hands on role and assist Ryan Giggs from now till the end of the season if he is appointed as the new manager because of his close relationship with his former protege and his desire to see Man Utd progress under the Welshman.
As reported in the story;
“If Giggs does take charge before the end of the season, as he did when Moyes was sacked in 2014, he would ask for Ferguson’s help him in the closing months of the campaign – and possibly beyond. I understand Ferguson – who has refused offers to comment on United since he stepped down – wouldn’t refuse that request, especially from one of his favourite former stars, although it’s believed he wouldn’t want a return to the dugout.”
Whether the Ferguson story is true or not, the underlying point is that LVG is walking a tightrope once again. United are currently fifth in the division, and fears are starting to heighten that the Red Devils will not qualify for the Champions League next season.
