Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has been in contact with current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The 78-year-old likes what he is seeing post-lockdown.

According to the Daily Mirror, Ferguson has been in contact with Solskjaer on multiple occasions. The Scot is said to be specifically happy with the progression of former youth stars Mason Greenwood and Scott McTominay.

“Alex has been enjoying the recent weeks of football’s return and the way United have emerged from lockdown,” a source told the Daily Mirror. “For someone still full of energy, he’s not at his best cooped up and is looking forward to returning to Old Trafford when it’s safe to do so. But he’s been delighted the way Solskjaer is managing the team and I believe they have spoken a couple of times in the last few weeks.

“He’s especially heartened by the emergence of the younger players like Scott McTominay and Mason Greenwood. He managed United for an awful long time during good times and bad so he knows it’s not an easy job, particularly when things aren’t going well. That’s why he’s pleased at Solskjaer’s progress. He knows Ole is showing the grit and determination needed but also the bravery to make hard decisions.”
