Giggs: Man United philosophy to return

FC's Craig Burley breaks down Manchester United's needs after a lacklustre season under David Moyes.

Ryan Giggs has vowed to bring back “the Manchester United philosophy” in his brief spell as interim manager after admitting that everyone at Old Trafford has let the club down this season.

• PickCenter: Best bets

The 40-year-old caretaker manager has vowed to play attacking football to rouse the crowd and will charge his players with being more creative and dynamic than they have been this year.

David Moyes was sacked on Tuesday after 34 league games in charge where United only scored 56 league goals, 40 fewer than leaders Liverpool.

But Giggs, a member of some entertaining attacking sides during Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign, said he favours a positive brand of football that is in keeping with the club’s traditions.  

“It is going to be my philosophy,” he told his first news conference in charge.  “It’s going to be Manchester United’s philosophy because I have been here all my career. I want the players to play with passion, tempo, be brave, imagination, all the things I expect of a Manchester United player. Work hard, but most of all enjoy it. As a player I know if I am enjoying the game, I can express myself more.”

United have fewer points at home than Crystal Palace this season and Giggs is determined to give their supporters something to savour in their four remaining matches, three of which are at home.

“We have three remaining games at Old Trafford, where our form hasn’t been great,” he added. “I want to see goals, I want to see tackles, I want to see players taking players on and I want to get the crowd up, to see the passion that should come with being a Manchester United player.”

Defeat at Everton last Sunday made it mathematically impossible for United to qualify for the Champions League but Giggs said he would rather steer them into the Europa League than miss out on Europe altogether.

“I want to win four games,” he said. “We are relying on other teams dropping points but I think it is important you have European football at Old Trafford and I want European nights at Old Trafford, it is as simple as that.”

United are only seventh and are certain to record their lowest finish in the Premier League era and Giggs insisted the players have to share the blame with the sacked Moyes.

“I think everyone shares responsibility,” he explained. “You win together and you lose together. Everyone involved this season hasn’t been to the standards of Manchester United. It’s as simple as that.”
