United plan to celebrate the former manager's return ahead of Saturday's Premier League fixture, with the club encouraging supporters to be in their seats 15 minutes before kick-off.

"It's great to go back to the stadium and it's going to be quite emotional for me when the game starts".

United face Wolves with the chance to win four consecutive games for the first time since January and close the gap at the top with early leaders Liverpool and Chelsea.

'It's made me feel so humble, as all the messages I've had from all over the world wishing me the best and the good wishes do resonate very, very strongly with me. So thank you for that support you've given me. And in the meantime, all the best to Jose and the players.

Sir Alex Ferguson paid a heartfelt tribute to one of his former players, Paul Scholes, at a Sportsman's Dinner held at Old Trafford last night.

He is in a good shape, actually, and then finishing is never something you can take for granted. It is completely normal everyone expects that". "We don't expect that".

"It has been nearly four weeks since we last played at Old Trafford but I can not forget how wonderful the atmosphere was in our last home game, even though it was a defeat against Tottenham", Mourinho added. Over 718 games and 155 goals, absolutely fantastic career.

"Bearing in mind he had some injury problems which would have put him alongside Ryan and Sir Bobby I am sure of that".

Discussing one of United's most decorated players of all time, Ferguson said: "What a career, the goals he scored are unbelievable, he was an absolutely ideal player and no matter how many great players we've had in the past, Paul sits in the great pantheon of those players, there's no question about that". Of the great players the club has had in the past, Paul sits in the great pantheon of those players - there's no question about that.

United and Mourinho were applauded off the pitch following the 3-0 defeat to Tottenham at Old Trafford and have since bounced back with wins over Burnley, Watford and Young Boys.
