There have also been reports of Sir Alex Ferguson having a bigger operational role at the club, and media outlet Manchester Evening News confirmed yesterday at the former club manager was spotted at Carrington.

The Telegraph has now reported the reason behind Sir Alex’s visit at United’s training ground and claimed that the Scotsman has been given a huge responsibility at the club.

Sir Alex Ferguson back to Carrington:

The former Manchester United boss was seen driving to Carrington before the training session yesterday.

There have been reports that Sir Alex met Giuseppe Rossi at the training ground. Rossi has previously played under Ferguson at Manchester United. However, Rossi has effectively denied the rumours on his Twitter profile.

Here’s what he tweeted:

Reacting to the news that Sir Alex met Rossi at the training ground, Rossi seemed to ridicule the idea of him being a coach. “Hahahahaha me a coach??????” wrote Rossi on his Twitter account.

However, English media outlet the Telegraph has claimed that Manchester United are set to offer a huge responsibility to Ferguson.

According to the report, the former boss will have a big say in the appointment of the next permanent manager at the club.

Earlier, in 2013, it was Sir Alex who chose David Moyes to be his successor at the club. While the appointment didn’t work well for both the sides, the next two appointments at the club didn’t last long, forcing the club to bring back the legendary Scotsman in an operational role.

What next?

Manchester United will be facing Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League later tonight at the Wembley Stadium.

A win would bring them level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal, who faced a stunning defeat to West Ham United last night.
