Manchester United legendary coach Alex Ferguson feels ‘hurt’ after being ‘sidelined’ by the club this as reported by Daily Mail.
The Scotsman won 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, four League Cups, and two Champions Leagues in his 27 years as a manager at Old Trafford but Mail claims the former gaffer feels ‘hurt’ as United ‘no longer calls on his counsel.’
“Sir Alex feels conflicted. He can see the irony that he still spends time thinking about United when he’s retired. But he loves the club and does feel a bit hurt that his opinion is never sought. He knows he’s not in charge anymore but it would still be nice for him to be asked,” a source told Daily Mail.
The report continues by saying that while ‘holding nothing against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’ Ferguson thinks the Red Devils should get ‘the very best available’ and that man is Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Since leaving in 2013, Ferguson has ‘increasingly felt isolated and out of touch’ with the club, as ‘the powerbrokers’ at United ‘never pick up the phone’ to him.
The report adds that Solskjaer and Ferguson ‘are not as close as the image’ and that the Norwegian ‘won’t seek him out to ask for guidance about players or philosophy.’
