Sources: Giggs won't get permanent job

ESPN FC's Des Curran looks at the leading candidates to succeed David Moyes at Manchester United.

Ryan Giggs will not be appointed the next manager of Manchester United on a permanent basis, sources told ESPN.

Ryan Giggs had been on David Moyes' coaching staff this season.
Ryan Giggs will need more experience before taking over Manchester United, sources said.

• Brewin: Sacking inevitable
• Delaney: The candidates
• Okwonga: Moyes’ highs and lows
• Shaw: 5 reasons Moyes had to go
• Podcast: The Chosen One?

The 40-year-old has been placed in interim charge as United look for a successor to the sacked David Moyes, who was replaced after the Glazers felt the scale of the decline was too great.

But while United believe their most decorated player has many of the qualities required to manage the club, they believe it is too soon for him to assume the reins on a permanent basis.

They will look for a candidate with more experience to replace Moyes, who was dismissed on Tuesday morning after overseeing 10 defeats in 22 games in 2014.

Giggs is studying for his Pro-Licence and was a player-coach under Moyes, but even if he impresses in the last four games of the season, United feel they require a manager with a proven record.

Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal is the early favourite to replace Moyes after Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp insisted he is not interested in the position at Old Trafford.

That does not automatically mean a manager with a sizable number of trophies to his name -- United appointed Moyes on the basis of other attributes -- but sources said trophies would help.

Giggs has won 13 league titles and two Champions Leagues as a United player and has made 962 appearances since debuting in 1991.

Former teammate Bryan Robson backed Giggs to be a successful manager once he gets some experience.

"I definitely think Ryan will be a manager," Robson told The Associated Press on Tuesday. "Whether he gets it full-time at a club like Manchester United is a big ask."

Dwight Yorke, who played alongside Giggs in United's famous treble-winning team in the 1998-99 season, said the interim manager should allow Manchester United to finish their dismal season on a positive note.

"For me, I think in the last four games, there will be more togetherness and playing a brand of football that is more eye-catching," Yorke said.

"Players will play more in the United way. Four games is not a lot, but I think Giggs is the right man."
