Sir Alex Ferguson will have a hand in Manchester United's choice for David Moyes' successor. The Daily Star says he flew back from America last weekend to preside over Manchester United's decision to sack Moyes.
Fergie returned from Boston, where he had been at Harvard University, to attend a board meeting called in the wake of United's woeful - and latest - defeat of a miserable season at Goodison Park on Sunday.
Once the decision had been taken to axe Moyes, which chief executive Ed Woodward informed him of in person at the club's Carrington training complex yesterday morning, thoughts turned to who will replace him.
It is understood United want to appoint someone with greater and proven European experience and have put Louis Van Gaal, Carlo Ancelotti and Diego Simeone on a three-man shortlist.
