Moyes, who was Sir Alex Ferguson’s replacement, formally took over in July and was dismissed less than 10 months later. Giggs, who had joined the Scot’s backroom staff last summer, will now take the reins.

A club statement read: “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.”

The 40-year-old, who is studying for his Pro-Licence, has made a record 962 appearances for the club. He has won 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League titles since making his debut in 1991.

According to reports, he will be assisted by his former teammate Nicky Butt, who had been working with United’s reserve team.

United are yet to announce whether they will keep the rest of Moyes’ coaching staff, including assistant manager Steve Round, first-team coaches Phil Neville and Jimmy Lumsden and goalkeeping coach Chris Woods.
