Ferguson retired in 2013 after guiding Manchester United to 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League crowns.
Following Ferguson’s retirement, David Moyes and Louis van Gaal took charge at United though the Red Devils are yet to win the league under a different boss.
Jose Mourinho has been in the Old Trafford dugout since 2016 and led United to second in the Premier League last season.
The former Chelsea boss has also brought the FA Cup and Europa League trophies to the Theatre of Dreams during his time at the helm.
And Djemba Djemba, who struggled during his spell at Old Trafford from 2003 to 2005 has compared Mourinho and Ferguson.
“First of all, for me, Manchester United today are not like they were when I was there,” Djemba Djemba told the Sun.
“In order to make everything work, it’s the manager’s responsibility.
“David Moyes was a little bit like Ferguson, he never really argued with the players and no major incidents came out.
“Ferguson would never give you that chance to do that. He would be close to you like a dad.
“But Jose Mourinho is not like Ferguson. He’s not close to the players.
“He’s a man who, when he does an interview, will speak negatively about the player, and that’s a different style.”
Mourinho has been under immense pressure at Manchester United this season.
Zinedine Zidane had been widely tipped to take over but Djemba Djemba has a different idea as to who should take over if Jose Mourinho departs.
“I would love to see Giggsy as the manager,” he added.
“I was a younger player and [Ryan] Giggs was an older, more experienced footballer.
“But he managed the younger players, he was a good role model for us all.
“I think he would be very good for the likes of Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard.
“Also, he was a legendary player for Manchester United, he won everything including the Champions League. I think they should give him a chance.”
