David Beckham: Ryan Giggs can be a top Premier League manager

After Sir Alex Ferguson explained he only managed four world-class players at Manchester United, David Beckham is not bothered by the snub and instead had nothing but good things to say about the Scot.
Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs has left the door open to return to management, but has heaped praise on current boss Louis Van Gaal.

David Beckham is convinced Ryan Giggs will be a successful Manchester United manager one day.

Beckham will grace the pitch at Old Trafford once more next month when he takes part in a charity match which aims to raise funds for UNICEF.

The former England captain spent 11 years playing alongside Giggs in the United first team after coming through the club's famed youth academy.

The Welshman is now assistant to manager Louis van Gaal and Beckham believes it is only a matter of time before the former...

Victor Valdes not signing for Sevilla from Manchester United - Jose Castro

Valdes is on the list of targets for United's Premier League rivals Liverpool and Chelsea as they weigh up bolstering their goalkeeping options.

Sevilla have no intention of signing Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes, according to club president Jose Castro.

Valdes, 33, has made just two appearances for United since joining the side on a free transfer last summer.

The former Barcelona player is not in manager Louis van Gaal's plans, with the Dutchman having restored David De Gea as his No. 1 while he also has Sergio Romero and Sam Johnstone at his disposal.

Last week, sources told ESPN FC that United are considering cancelling...

Jose Mourinho couldn't be swayed by Alex Ferguson to take Man United job

ESPN FC's Craig Burley is fed up with Jose Mourinho and believes Chelsea need to follow Liverpool's example in sacking their manager.

Jose Mourinho has said even Sir Alex Ferguson could not tempt him to take the Manchester United job in 2013 because he was determined to return to Chelsea.

Ferguson stepped down as United manager just over two years ago, bringing to an end 26 years in charge at Old Trafford.

The Scot was ultimately replaced by former Everton boss David Moyes, who did not last a full season at the helm following poor form.

In the same summer as Moyes' appointment, Mourinho returned to Chelsea having been linked with...

Ryan Giggs would be Man United boss now had he retired, says Alex Ferguson

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says an average Manchester United side just couldn't keep up with a reformed Arsenal squad in this week's Premier League action.
Ryan Giggs watches his team in the shadow of the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand.
Ryan Giggs was caretaker manager for a few months in 2014, but Sir Alex Ferguson says he could have had the job earlier.

Sir Alex Ferguson says Ryan Giggs would have been his successor at Manchester United had he retired earlier, while also insisting that appointing David Moyes was not a mistake.

Giggs was 39 when Ferguson retired in 2013, but he still played on under Moyes and later took over as caretaker manager after the former Everton boss was sacked in April 2014.

The Welshman hung up his boots at the end of that season and took up a backroom role under new manager Louis van Gaal.

But speaking in a BBC documentary...

Anthony Martial plays down Thierry Henry comparisons: 'I am very far off'

French head coach Didier Deschamps believes there is more to come from Manchester United and France starlet Anthony Martial.
Anthony Martial has been a sensation since joining Manchester United from Monaco.

Anthony Martial says he's no Thierry Henry, and has a long way before he can reach the status of his famous fellow Frenchman.

This summer, Martial made a surprising move to Manchester United for a fee that could climb to as much as £58 million. Since arriving at Old Trafford, the talented 19-year-old showed a turn of pace and comfort in front of goal that has reminded many onlookers of Arsenal legend Henry.

Martial, however, says any comparisons to the World Cup and Champions League winner...
