Sir Alex Ferguson at Man Utd training ground ahead of Liverpool clash as Solskjaer turns to old boss for help – The Sun

SIR ALEX FERGUSON paid a visit to Manchester United's training ground ahead of the side's home clash against Liverpool on Sunday.

And current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wouldn't be blamed for taking in some advice as he oversees their worst start to a season for 30 years.

Solksjaer has previously admitted he is in regular contact with the man he calls 'The Gaffer' – after playing under Fergie between 1996 and 2007.

And with top-of-the-table Liverpool the visitors to Old Trafford this weekend, there is plenty of work for under-fire Ole to get through.

SunSport has previously reported how Solskjaer goes to see club legend Ferguson after each game.

Fergie, 77, is English football's greatest ever manager, scooping every gong going in an incredible period of dominance spanning three decades.

Solskjaer, 45, has revealed he goes for a drink and a chat with Ferguson after most games.


And it might have been some of the hard stuff needed so far this season with United toiling down in 12th spot, two points clear of the bottom three with just two wins in eight.

The Metro have reported that Solskjaer would reportedly RESIGN if results don't improve.

They says he has "too much respect" for supporters to put his own personal pride at managing the club he played for ahead of what is best for the future.

But in the short term, the 46-year-old is refusing to give up on his dream job.

He said: “I’ve never felt it's too big for me and I’m confident in what we're trying to do and with my staff.

“The mood here is always good, we've come a long way on what you call the culture, environment we're working in, it's positive.”


Solskjaer has received the full backing of executive vice chairman Ed Woodward in the run up to Sunday’s visit of table toppers Liverpool.

That is despite just five wins from their last 23 games under him and the worst start to a season in 30 years.

They could even be in the bottom three by Sunday night.
