Sir Alex Ferguson may have retired 5 years ago, but the Scot is still running Old Trafford with an iron fist if today’s evidence is anything to go by, reports the Metro.

The 76-year-old attended a memorial service at Old Trafford today to remember those that lost their lives on the 60th anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster.

Ferguson followed in the footsteps of compatriot and former United’s manager – Sir Matt Busby by promoting youth players at United’s youth set-up when he was appointed manager in 1986.

Sir Ferguson named a club youth product in every single one of his matchday squads for the duration of his 27 years at the Theatre of Dreams.

It’s no surprise then that the Scot has been impressed with countryman Scott McTominay, who has broke into United’s first-team squad this term.

The midfielder was surprisingly picked ahead of £89m Paul Pogba in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Huddersfield and he had quite a good game.

And now, Ferguson told Mourinho to pick the 21-year-old more often as he made his way out of the stadium earlier today.

Ferguson can be heard calling after Scott who joined United when he was only seven, and shared a few words with the young midfielder after the service.

Ferguson then embraces Mourinho and points after McTominay, telling the Portuguese boss to select the midfielder for the rest of the season.

McTominay’s made six appearances for United this term.
