published on Saturday, 26 April 2014

Ryan Giggs has received Sir Alex Ferguson's backing, after he was appointed as Manchester United's interim manager.Ferguson, who reluctantly agreed that David Moyes be sacked this week, stated that Giggs was the perfect choice to step in for the rest of the season.Giggs is determined to land the job on a permanent basis and Ferguson has said that the Welshman is United through and through."">"I think that he [Giggs] is the one man they should go to, really," the Scot, who retired as manager last summer after 26 years, said."He's got 20-odd years of experience at Manchester United. I signed him as a kid. He's gone through the gamut of emotions at the club – he's experienced all the highs and lows."He knows exactly what's needed to be a Manchester United player and I was so pleased he brought Paul Scholes back in, and Nicky Butt of course – two great professionals. They understand the club, they are hard workers, they are straight as a die."So you have got the right combinations there, there's no doubt about that."
