Manchester United great Sir Alex Ferguson says the ability to communicate effectively with the entire locker room is one of the most important lessons he learned in management.

The 79-year-old retired as Premier League champion in 2013, lowering the curtain on an incredible season with the Red Devils that included 13 league titles and two Champions League crowns.

Ferguson, who was at Old Trafford when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team lost 5-0 to Liverpool on Sunday, has been sharing some of his knowledge as part of UEFA’s recent Pro License student exchange program.

“I really have great affection for people who are learning the game and want to be coaches and coaches,” the former United manager told the UEFA website.

‘I started (to manage) at 32 years old and, of course, in time from there you learn.

“But I would honestly say that coming into management at 32, there were a couple of things that I knew were helpful: One, I could make a decision; two, I played the game; and three, I had my training (qualifications). Now these things are really important.

‘Other things I developed during the learning process if you give it time, in particular communication. I think when you’re in charge of a soccer team, you’re not just in charge of 11 players on the field. ‘

Ferguson was speaking to a current group of Pro License students studying with the national associations of Bulgaria, Cyprus, Poland and the Republic of Ireland, including former United defender John O’Shea.

“I think it is very important that the coaches go through as many fields as they can,” added Ferguson. Even refresher courses and keep attending them, because there is always something, little things, that you learn until the end.

“UEFA has to lead the way in terms of the directions of the coaches and the avenues they can afford and offer them to improve as coaches.

“And I think UEFA will always be the most important organization in terms of creating the right platforms for young people to do well.”

Ferguson has remained a key behind-the-scenes influence at United and has reportedly supported under pressure Solskjaer in the wake of the attack at the hands of the club’s fierce rivals.

The legendary Scotsman and former president Martin Edwards visited Carrington yesterday, but United insisted they were both attending a pre-planned engagement.

Having been Solskjaer’s mentor during his early days as a manager, Ferguson remains a champion of the iconic former striker despite United’s torrid form this season.

Sportsmail has previously reported that United, which handed Solskjaer a new three-year deal over the summer, planned to review its position in December.

However, the ineffective loss to Liverpool accelerated the process with board-level talks held between Joel Glazer, Ed Woodward and Richard Arnold on Monday.

United did not expect such a drop in fortune, as Solskjaer’s side collapsed to five losses in their last nine games in all competitions.

The club has been promoted to fire Solskjaer soon, and has been strongly linked to former Chelsea and Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte, who is interested in the job.

But Mauricio Pochettino remains United’s first-choice target, the Daily star claim, and the current PSG coach is said to be highly rated by Ferguson as well.
