Reports: Ferguson to help select Moyes' successor

It's been reported that Alex Ferguson will have a say in the selection of the man to follow in the footsteps of David Moyes.

The disastrous 10 month reign of David Moyes as Manchester United manager came to an end yesterday and the hunt for his successor starts now. Ryan Giggs has been made the interim manager till the end of the season, but speculation is already at fever pitch level around who will take over the role with names such as Louis van Gaal, Jurgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti being bandied about.

Ferguson of course was the man who chose Moyes as his successor, and it seems that this time around he will have a say again, but perhaps not as pivotal a role.

While Moyes was the first choice of the man who dominated English football for over twenty years, according to BBC Sport, he also had a hand in the discussions to terminate the Scot's contract this week, in a meeting with the board and director Bobby Charlton.

Given that Moyes' time in charge wasn't exaclty a roaring success, it seems a surprise that Ferguson should be included again in the process, but this time around, he will be one of a few on the selection committee with every board member having a say. Sure what could possibly go wrong?
