It has been something of an old boys reunion at Carrington over the past few weeks.
At various points, Nicky Butt, Quinton Fortune and Dwight Yorke have been around.
Gary Neville was there with the England team on Monday and Silvestre has been using the impressive facilities until he decides his next career move.
That the old boys feel so comfortable around the place is testament to the family spirit Ferguson has moulded into one of the world's biggest sporting operations.
And is why Silvestre sees no end to United's quest for honours whilst ever the legendary Scot is around.
"United will always stay the same as long as Sir Alex is in charge," said Silvestre.
"The spirit in the dressing room is exactly as it was. It is still full of winners. The hunger for trophies has not changed.
"The thing with Sir Alex is that when a player arrives, he makes sure they are in a good state of mind to give their best."
Approaching his 71st birthday, Ferguson might not be quite as hands-on as he once was.
However, the passion and fierce determination that has brought United 12 league titles and two European Cups in a bulging trophy cabinet remain.
Ferguson's achievements will be honoured ahead of the Premier League encounter with QPR on November 23, when a statue is unveiled in his honour.
There is no immediate sign of him walking away just yet though.
Indeed, the challenge laid down by Manchester City's title triumph last term seems to have invigorated a man who has just celebrated an incredible 26 years in the job.
"I am not surprised he has been here for so long at all," said Silvestre.
"The challenges give the manager energy. He is always up for the fight and his passion is incredible. Football and United mean everything to him.
"I don't get the hairdryer any more but you can see him starting to turn the heat up the nearer it gets to the game. In that sense, he is just the same as when I was here."
