    In Seventy-Seven it was Docherty
    Atkinson will make it Eighty-Three
    And everyone will know just who we are
    They'll be singing 'Que Sera Sera'
    United! Man United!
    We're the boys in Red and we're on our way to Wem-be-ly

    Giggs in temporary charge

    Following the departure of David Moyes as manager, Manchester United has announced that Ryan Giggs, the club’s most decorated player, will assume responsibility for the first team until a permanent appointment can be made.

    Ryan Giggs has been named as Manchester United's interim manager following David Moyes' sacking.

    United have turned to the club's record appearance holder to fill the void created by Moyes' departure earlier on Tuesday.

    The 40-year-old, who was player-coach under Moyes, will be in charge at Old Trafford until a permanent replacement is appointed.

    The club said in a statement: "Following the departure of David Moyes as manager, Manchester United has announced that Ryan Giggs, the club's most decorated player, will assume responsibility for the first team until a permanent appointment can be made.


    "The club will make no further comment on this process until it is concluded."

    Giggs will take charge for the first time for this weekend's home clash with Norwich, which you can see live on Sky Sports 1.

    The Welshman is among the contenders to become a permanent replacement for Moyes with Holland coach Louis van Gaal the bookmakers' favourite to get the job.

    The appointment of Giggs to replace Moyes has won universal backing from his former United team-mates Dwight Yorke and David May.


    May told Sky Sports News Radio that Giggs will be a perfect appointment to take the reins.

    Yorke admits he would have given the job to Giggs last summer prior to the appointment of Moyes.

    "I would have given Ryan Giggs the job last summer because there would have been a continuation there," Yorke told Sky Sports News.

    "He has been at the club for over 20 years, he's a true Red and of course he's doing his Pro licence. Yes, people always question whether he has got the experience but Sir Alex would have been there to guide him and he would have been able to keep the backroom staff."


    Sky Sports expert Jamie Carragher also feels Giggs will be a safe pair of hands to take charge of first-team affairs, but believes Borussia Dortmund's Jurgen Klopp would be the ideal candidate to take over at Old Trafford.

    Carragher said: "This is new for Ryan Giggs but he knows the Manchester United way of doing things and he's taking his coaching badges so he obviously wants to be a manager.

    "He knows the club inside out and if he has a great end to the season, who knows?

    "I'd imagine they'd bring another manager in though and keep Giggs as part of the coaching staff.

    "Louis van Gaal is the elder statesman, the experienced man and maybe the man with the ego to take on Manchester United but he'll be with Holland at the World Cup and United want to get on with transfers.

    "Jurgen Klopp, full of energy and personality, would be a better fit. A new manager needs to inject power and pace into this Manchester United side."

    However, United could face a fight to land Klopp with the German insisting he has no plans to quit Borussia Dortmund.

    Louis van Gaal is the favourite with Sky Bet to be the next Manchester United manager after David Moyes was sacked on Tuesday morning.

    Moyes' miserable reign at Old Trafford comes to an end less than one season into a six-year contract signed last summer, with defeat at former club Everton on Sunday being United's 11th in the league in 34 matches.

    Van Gaal, who is due to lead the Netherlands at the World Cup in Brazil, is 2/1 to be the next permanent manager at Old Trafford, with Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp 9/2 second favourite.

    Ryan Giggs has taken charge on an interim basis, starting against Norwich on Saturday, and he is 6/1 to get the job full-time while Sir Alex Ferguson is 18/1 to come out of retirement and return to the Old Trafford dugout.

    Paul Wiggins, Sky Bet's Head of Football, said: "David Moyes' disastrous tenure has come to an end, and while some of Manchester United's results have been pleasing for bookmakers they haven't for the fans and the inevitable has occurred this morning.

    "There has been a spread of money across the four frontrunners in the market with Louis van Gaal, Jurgen Klopp, Ryan Giggs and Diego Simeone all generating early interest.

    "However, Van Gaal is also favourite to be the next Tottenham manager with Daniel Levy reportedly having already held talks with the Dutchman as Tim Sherwood is widely expected to be replaced this summer."

    Alex Ferguson had impeccable timing of when to leave. He got out on a high note. After that it went downhill.
    MU borrowed enormous sums of money in its glory years.
    Now a lot of the money it earns from football gate receipts is used just to pay off the interest of those big loans.

    If it is relegated to 2nd Division in future, then hard to pay off those loans.

    I sincerely respect Giggs for taking over interim but a new manager is a must to revamp the situation. The new one should be bold and fierce enough to control and warn those overly paid MU stars to butt up or face the imminent of being sold away, there is no such thing of being in the permanent first team whether you are Rooney or not. No clubs will want Fellani but if he is not in the plan of the new one, then must well sell him off at a loss and get someone more suitable. MU's horizon looks much more promising now than before compare to keep hoping that DM can do some miracles giving him the time. The new era for us has just began.

    It is very strange when 11 men running on the pitch will suddenly play badly due to 1 guy shouting instructions. Worse is that all 11 or even the reserved are paid millions!

    I would say, famous players aren't the best. Committed players are what you need for a good team. The game needs all 11 players to put in their effort and manager needs to remove without fear those that are not willing. That much I know about soccer. Hehe

    Of course the coach matters lah! He is the boss and he must be able to control all the prima donnas and select the right players to play.

    True but the coach can't change the same team with the same players in a couple of months from top to bottom! Or bottom to top. Haha. Ultimately, it is the players right?

    Lol... it takes both hands to clap... so no matter how good either the players or the coach without the support of the other will never be able to put up a good performance / show / game... firstly i believe is the coach must be able to control the situation then the players ability to gel and play to instructions... then thats where or how teamwork/ team spirit is bonded between the manager and players!

    I believe initially when DM came aboard and assume the MU manager role, the players, I meant the core of MU team, the seniors and so called super stars were getting to know him, his coaches and adapt to the style asked of them. However, somehow, somewhere, when things did not turn out right and with the wrong results in home and away games, thats where the players lost total faith and confidence in DM. Blame it on the style and mindset of the senior players after years of SAF drilling. They just completely gave up on DM no matter how hard they tried his methods. I totally agree it takes both hands to clap. This is the best time for the current set of MU players to soul search and admit that they as players did not perform to expectations too and partly to be accounted for some of the worst results and records broken. Look at it this way, there is a silver lining somewhere in front for us, that I am sure. Always MU, MU always.
