Manchester United interim manager Ryan Giggs has stated that he is still in the dark about what the future holds for him especially with regards to becoming the manager at United. Giggs was a surprise appointment after the sacking of David Moyes a few weeks ago. The club also drafted in a number of their older players like Paul Scholes as part of the coaching staff. The tactics appeared to work – for one game – after the club managed a successful 4-0 win over Norwich in which they looked like their old self.
However, the initial euphoria quickly disappeared after United suffered a 1-0 defeat against Sunderland last weekend. This was first defeat of Giggs managerial career, which is only two matches old.
After having suffered very poor form this season, it is understood that United will be looking to appoint an experienced coach in order to take the club forward. Giggs is aware that he does not have the experience to compete with the likes of Louis van Gaal, who have been linked with the role.
However, he does not know what decision has been taken with regard to his future at the club. As a player, he is out of contract at the end of the season and he could even announce his retirement – though the guys at france suisse cote don’t expect this to happen.
“When you speak about Nemanja, it’s like you are speaking about myself. We joined the club together. We have been in the same hotels. We go into training together. We win the same trophies. Thanks to him, because I play alongside him and for me he was a great centre-back. When you see a player like Nemanja Vidic is leaving this club you feel really sad,” said Patrice Evra referring to the exit of defender Vidic, who will be joining Inter Milan in the new season.
