Manchester United chief executive Richard Arnold has reportedly handed Sir Alex Ferguson a new role at the club.

News of a change for the Scot comes days after he briefly met Cristiano Ronaldo at the club’s Carrington training ground on Tuesday.

Ferguson has been a non-executive director at United since retiring as manager in 2013. He still attends most matches but hasn’t had a hands-on role for almost a decade.

But now Arnold has turned to Ferguson for a source of advice.

The Mail claims the legendary former manager is alongside ex-CEO David Gill, former Red Devils captain Bryan Robson and current football director John Murtough on a board of advisors for Arnold.

Ferguson managed United for 26-and-a-half years and won 38 major trophies. And Arnold is keen to tap into the 80-year-old’s knowledge of the game.
