The Scot totally rejects suggestions he left behind a poor squad when he retired (Picture: Getty) Sir Alex Ferguson has reservations over Manchester United’s approach to recruitment and is still disappointed with the decision to let Wilfried Zaha leave the club. United’s hierarchy have been criticised over recent transfers, spending big on a number of flops, and new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to enact yet another clear out as he tries to rebuild a disjointed United squad. According to the Mail on Sunday, Ferguson privately pins the blame on the club’s bloated worldwide scouting network, believing ‘too many cooks spoil the broth’. Ferguson reportedly has far less say at United than has been reported (Picture: Getty) United have expanded their pool of scouts since Sir Alex left and now have more than 50 full-time scouts filing daily reports, with the data then presented to the manager. But Ferguson feels having so many different, and often conflicting, reports compromises buys, with £52million signing Fred cited as one such example. [metro-zone-post-strip] The report also claims that Sir Alex is ‘upset’ by suggestions that he left United’s squad in need of major surgery when he retired in 2013. In fact, he believes the opposite was true, and is still aggrieved by how badly Wilfried Zaha was treated under David Moyes before subsequently being sold by Ed Woodward while Louis van Gaal was in charge. Ferguson felt Zaha’s potential was wasted by his successors (Picture: Getty) Sir Alex felt £15m signing Zaha could ‘spearhead the next generation’, and his opinion has been validated somewhat by the Crystal Palace star’s form in recent seasons, with any suitors now needing to spend upwards of £75m to convince the Eagles to sell. Ferguson also felt Wayne Rooney was past his best and advised the club to cash in when Chelsea offered £50m, but instead Woodward decided to hand the ageing forward a new long-term contract. The revelations comes on the day that Sir Alex returns to the Old Trafford dugout for one last time in an exhibition match to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the treble-winning season, though his influence behind the scenes has become increasingly diluted.

SIR ALEX FERGUSON is “hurt” after being given the cold shoulder at Manchester United as Ed Woodward and his fellow chiefs “never pick up the phone”. According to the Mail, Fergie is no longer being consulted by the club he led magnificently for 27 years and is now out of the loop with what is going on at Old Trafford. Sir Alex Ferguson feels like he is being left out of the loop at Manchester United these days The former boss, 77, will return to the dugout today to mark the 20-year anniversary of the famous 1999 Champions League final. But while he will gather his old squad together to take on Bayern Munich, it is thought there will be a ‘tinge of sadness’ throughout the occasion because of recent events. The report says that despite their public relationship, Ferguson and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are not as close as many would think. Solskjaer makes a point of seeing him before kick-off at games but is no longer going to the Glaswegian for advice and guidance in the same way. This was supposed to be the appointment that got Manchester United back on track after six turbulent years under David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho. A League Managers’ Association source told the Mail: “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 any more but it would still be nice for him to be asked” Another area where Ferguson is reportedly being left exasperated is in recruitment. He famously had a close-knit group of scouts he could trust, now there are more than 60 across the globe, all doing their own work trying to find the next big thing. And that lack of cohesion led to the £52million purchase of Brazilian midfielder Fred, who joined from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer. [article-rail-topic title=”Latest Manchester United news” term_id=”1480″ posts_number=”8″ /] Ferguson always seemed to time player sales perfectly with the likes of David Beckham and Roy Keane leaving Old Trafford. But it is believed Ferguson was dismayed by the decision to focus on Adnan Januzaj rather than Wilfried Zaha and give Wayne Rooney a new big-money contract when they could have cashed in. Now, his best source of getting information about the club is through close friend and assistant manager Mike Phelan – because the club are no longer involving him.
