Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson will “have a say” in picking a successor for David Moyes, Mirror reports.

Ferguson was the man who put Moyes at the United helm only a year ago and will be consulted during the club’s negotiations with Louis van Gaal.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach is going to need the approval from Fergie, along with other board members, before a decision is made.

Sir Bobby Charlton, one of the board members, and Ferguson were both asked in the sacking of David Moyes in what was labeled as a “club decision”.

At 8am Tuesday morning, Moyes was finally informed of the board’s outcome.

Sources suggests that the decision was made due to there not being any evidence the team were going to improve under the former Everton manager.

Moyes waited for his team at the Carrington training ground and personally thanked them, before departing via a private road at 1.30pm.

The Red Devils will install club legend Ryan Giggs as the caretaker manager until the end of the season, but even if he wins all remaining four games, will not be considered for the job after the summer.

It is expected that Dutch national team coach Louis van Gaal will take the United hot-seat after the World Cup in July.
