Ryan Giggs: Leaves Man Utd after 29 years

Ryan Giggs: Leaves Man Utd after 29 years

Sir Alex Ferguson is waiting in the wings and is ready to advise Ryan Giggs if Louis van Gaal loses his job as Manchester United boss, according to reports on Sunday. 

Although the now 74-year-old Ferguson, who retired as Manchester United’s manager in 2013, has no desire to return to the dugout, the Sunday People claims he would be prepared to take a hands-on role behind the scenes to help fellow club legend Giggs, currently Van Gaal’s No 2, navigate the remainder of the season – should the Welshman was given the reigns.

Louis van Gaal: Manager under fire for post-match remark

Van Gaal faces another crucial moment in his United career at Anfield on Sunday, with many believing he won’t be able to carry on if his stars suffer a heavy defeat at arch-rivals Liverpool.

Since having a hand in the appointment of David Moyes once he decided to step down, Ferguson has effectively been excluded from any of the key strategic decisions taken by the club.

But he retains the respect and support of the American Glazer family who own he club.

If Giggs does take charge before the end of the season, as he did when Moyes was sacked in 2014, he would ask for Ferguson’s help him in the closing months of the campaign – and possibly beyond.

    Of course what this article fails to explore is why a club of this magnitude would even contemplate appointing a manager that needs help in the first place.

    Does anyone else not find the concept utterly ludicrous, not least given the 2 recent appointments? Moyes who never won a trophy, never won a league game at a top 4 team in 10 years of trying and never looked like a united manager. LVG who hadnt managed a big club in years, never managed in England, and owing to his role in international management was completely removed from the club scene.

    It is absolutely embarrassing to think we would appoint Giggs, so that he can learn the ropes on the job?
    This is not the Barcelona side that Guardiola took over or the Madrid side that Zidane took over. This is the united side of Blind, Carrick, Young and Rooney in need of root and branch overhaul in playing staff and playing style.

    Not a job for an untested novice.
    Only Woodward would think otherwise.
    Mind you, LVG is lowering expectations so much, the blind can only see great things from Giggs in the years ahead.
    Lunatics have taken over the asylum.



    The 2 snakes combine.



    The next United manager is Giggs. Am sure he will succeed. He should bring Mike Phelan, Tony Shudwick, Rene Meuleunsteen as his backroom staff. Then we’ll be on our way to glory again!



    Stay away from Giggs please.Conte or Simeone,if not Pep or Mourinho.



    Love SAF to bits but if,and I repeat if, this ‘news’ is true, was his beloved Cathy constrained to take a back seat again after her husband’s publicly declared reason for ‘retiring’ ?? Other posters here have already given more than valid reasons for this not to happen.And if he loves the club how about helping LVG,not that Louis would be man enough to accept would he ? So much may depend on the coming game’s result me thinks.Seriously we need help.



    the worst thing untd can do is bring back fergie using giggs as his puppet,for a top club to stay a top club you need stability in management,lvg is working well now as todays win away at liverpool shows,leave him in next season titles and trophies good possibility sack now him and bring back fergie its another 2 seasons to adjust again.,take chelsea as good example years of chop change finally got what they deserve,
