Giggs: Coaching United 'the Proudest Moment of My Life'

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs on Friday described being named head coach of the club where he has played his entire career the “proudest moment of my life.” Giggs, the most decorated player in the club’s history, succeeds David Moyes after the former Everton coach was fired on Tuesday. The Welshman will remain in charge for the final three games of the season while the club’s owner, the Glazer family, looks for a long-term replacement this summer.

"I have got to say it is the proudest moment of my life," the 40-year-old told MUTV.  "I have supported Manchester United all my life, I have been a part of the club since I was 13. I am proud, I am happy, a little nervous and, just like playing, can't wait for the game on Saturday."

During his first press conference, Giggs revealed that the first call he made upon being appointed was to former United coach Alex Ferguson. "I wanted advice and I wanted to know just what to expect," he said. He added that the mood in the locker room has been good leading up to tomorrow’s game against Norwich City at Old Trafford. He also thanked Moyes “for giving me my first chance in coaching.”

With three games to go, Giggs’ target is sixth-place, which would be good enough for a Europa League. Tottenham currently occupies that slot, six points ahead of United, which has a game in hand.
