UEFA president Michel Platini wants legendary ex-Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson to work for the European governing body in a technical capacity in the future.
Ferguson retired in May but is expected to be asked by Platini soon to join UEFA forces with the Frenchman believing Ferguson to be the perfect man for the job.
Platini said in UEFA's Champions League season review, as reported by the Independent : "Sir Alex Ferguson has left an indelible imprint on the UEFA Champions League.
"It is strange to think that a coach who has featured so prominently across the European football landscape over three decades will not be seen issuing his instructions on the touchline.
"But we hope he will continue to play a role with us, helping shape the direction of the sport and safeguarding its future."
Ferguson won the Premier League 13 times as United manager and the Champions League twice and is highly-regarded as one of the most successful coaches ever.
Platini has therefore decided to act and obviously feels that Ferguson's knowledge, experience and credibility in the game might as well be put forward to good use.
Currently on the board of United and working as a club ambassador, it remains to be seen when UEFA will make their approach for Ferguson and whether the legend in the game will agree to help out.
