Former Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre insists Sir Alex Ferguson will have no say in who should replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as coach.

The legendary coach was heavily involved in David Moyes’ decision to replace him after his retirement in 2013.

It has been suggested that Ferguson, eight years later, still has some influence over key decisions like who should be the manager.

It was previously reported that Ferguson wants Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino to replace Solskjaer in the Old Trafford dugout.

Silvestre, who played with Ferguson at United from 1999 to 2008, has dismissed claims that his former boss still has a say in managerial decisions.

He told the French publication L’Equipe: ‘He is part of the directive, but he is not consulted about the change of coach.

‘The last time he influenced the arrival of a coach was with David Moyes.

It is far from operational. He certainly had this privileged relationship with Ole, but he’s left behind. ‘

Solskjaer’s trophyless three-year reign finally came to a crashing halt on Sunday, less than 24 hours after a humiliating 4-1 loss to newly promoted Watford.

Michael Carrick has been temporarily put in charge for the upcoming matches, starting against Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Then, an interim boss will be put in place before a permanent manager takes the job at the end of the season.

Silvestre, who played with Carrick at Old Trafford, says the temporary boss will bring “serenity” to the club.

And he added: ‘He will prepare the team and give the best of himself. It’s still in the learning phase, but it will still give the team a boost. ”

Sportsmail previously reported that Pochettino is ready to leave PSG and take over for United, as he is unhappy in Paris.

The former Tottenham boss lives in a hotel while his family remains in London, and is said to be frustrated at managing a dressing room with big egos like Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.

Pochettino was strongly linked to United’s job when Solskjaer replaced José Mourinho in December 2018 and is still admired by the Old Trafford hierarchy.

Vice President Ed Woodward, who was due to step down in late 2021, could extend his stay at the club to resolve the United manager’s situation.
