Ryan Giggs Head In Hands

Following the dismissal of manager David Moyes, veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs has been appointed interim boss at Manchester United.

The 40-year-old Welshman has been at Manchester United for 29 years but today marks his first drive to work as the manager of the Red Devils. The player-coach, who is still registered in the squad to play the soon-to-be disposed Premier League champions remaining four games of the season, took charge of his first training session on Wednesday with the help of his former teammate and coaching colleague Paul Scholes at the club’s Aon sponsored Carrington training complex.

"It's great to see Paul Scholes here at the Aon Training Complex today, assisting Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville," read a post on Manchester United's official Twitter account.

Coaches Steve Round and Jimmy Lumsden are also understood to have left their posts along with David Moyes but Phil Neville and goalkeeping coach Chris Woods remain in their positions on the coaching staff at present as speculation continues over who could come in to replace the sacked Scot on a permanent basis.

It is under former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who retired last summer after 26 years in charge of the Red Devils, will once again have his say in who is appointed to replace the man he chose back in May to no avail.

Ryan Giggs is unlikely to be handed the role as manager permanently but could be in the frame for the future, according to The Mirror. The favourite remains Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal who had previously been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur after suggesting he would be open to a move to the Premier League but United may have to wait until after the World Cup in Brazil this summer to secure the Dutch coach. In the meantime, it looks as though Giggs, Scholes, Butt and Neville will be rolling back the years at Carrington.
