Manchester United have confirmed that Ryan Giggs will take temporary charge of the club after it was announced that David Moyes has been sacked. The Welsh winger, who was a player coach under Moyes this season will lead his side into a Barclays Premier League match with relegation contenders Norwich City at Old Trafford on Saturday. Giggs is a club legend and with four matches remaining, United were never going to get a permanent manager in at this stage of the season. With the Welshman’s coaching experience at the club this season added to the face he’s been at the club for well over 20 years and knows the United way.
The only thing I worry about is the supporters of the club turning against Giggs if things do not go well for him. That is something I would hate to see. Some football supporters can be fickle. After what has happened this season, I don’t think we can be expecting Giggs to turn it around instantly with the players performing from the whistle on Saturday, it would show that the players may not have been performing for David Moyes, but that is only one of the ways I see the last nine months and 22 days of Moyes’ reign at the Old Trafford club.
I am sure Giggs will give it his best shot and see where it takes him, but he could have a Tim Sherwood effect at the club, which has been suggested by some supporters on social media and by some journalists, but we shall see. Who will United bring in as a permanent fixture for next season? The only thing we know is that Borussia Dortmund manager Jürgen Klopp has already ruled himself out as a contender, who would you choose?
