The successes and history of Manchester United cannot be complete without mentioning Sir Alex Ferguson, which is why the club immortalised him by erecting his statue at Old Trafford.
Ferguson was the most successful Man United manager – during his spell with United – he won 13 Premier Leagues, 5FA Cups, 2 Champions League among other trophies.
Ferguson is still very much attached to United and report according to Daily Star has indicated that he has sanctioned a deal for Mike Phelan as the manager for Wigan.
After unimpressive spells with the Wigan, Gary Caldwell and Warren Joyce were shown the exit doors of DW Stadium and the club is looking to secure a more reliable manager.
Ferguson had Phelan as one of his assistance and he thinks Phelan can help the struggling Championship club.
However, several managers including the ex-manager of Hull City and the current caretaker coach of the club Graham Barrow are in the running for the position at Wigan.
It was on Ferguson’s advice that David Moyes was appointed the manager of Man United but he eventually failed the club. Nonetheless, whenever Ferguson speaks, clubs listen to and take his advice because his judgement is reliable.
Wigan are hoping to gain promotion to their third tier this season.
