'Managing United is proudest moment'

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

Ryan Giggs revealed it will be the proudest moment of his life to manage Manchester United for the first time against Norwich on Saturday.

Ryan Giggs has been named as Manchester United's interim manager.

• Payne: Leadership vacuum
• Mitten: Busy few days

Interim manager Giggs, who is in caretaker charge after David Moyes was sacked on Tuesday, said the first person he consulted was Sir Alex Ferguson after he was asked to assume temporary control.

And the 40-year-old, a boyhood United fan, said he can’t wait for the opportunity to add a first game as manager to the 962 he has played in the club’s colours.

“It is the proudest moment of my life,” Giggs told MUTV. “I have supported Manchester United all my life. It’s been the biggest part of my life since I was 13, 14 since I signed schoolboy forms. I am proud, I am happy, a little bit nervous and just like playing, I can’t wait for the game on Saturday.”

Giggs said he spoke to Ferguson, his manager for 22 years of his first-team career at Old Trafford, about his new duties.

“Obviously,” he said. “I played under Sir Alex for so long. He was the first person to call and I wanted advice and who better to ring? Why wouldn’t I?”

Giggs said he was happy to answer chief executive Ed Woodward’s call to take charge of the team on a temporary basis while United look for a new manager.

He added: “Ed asked me to look after the team for the remaining four games, I had no hesitation in saying yes. It’s been a crazy week.”

Giggs explained his decision to ask his former teammate Paul Scholes to join his coaching staff, making it four members of the ‘Class of ‘92’ at the helm, along with Phil Neville and Nicky Butt, and he said they will be equally proud.

He said: “Phil was already involved. Nicky was with the reserves, I asked him to come and help with the first team, which he was more than happy to do. The phone call was to Scholesy because I know how much the club feels to these people. It means as much to them as me. They will give everything in a short time to try and end what has been a frustrating season on a high.”
