Ryan Giggs not thinking about Manchester United manager’s job
Red Devils enjoyed a flying start under their interim manager when beating Norwich City 4-0
April 27th, 2014
Ryan Giggs cut a delighted figure in the Old Trafford dug-out on Saturday evening when Manchester United claimed a facile win against the Canaries, with the Welshman having recently taken charge of the first team following the sacking of David Moyes.
Giggs is the bookmaker’s second favourite behind Louis van Gaal to become the next permanent manager of the Red Devils, with the board likely to plump for the Dutchman as a safe pair of hands before potentially installing the former at a later stage.
Giggs is simply focusing on the here and now, with United having three more games to try and seal a Europa League spot for next term. Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata both scored twice as the champions of last season romped to an excellent victory.
Giggs told Sky Sports: “It’s not something that I’m thinking of at the moment. It’s just these four games.
“It’s taken so much out of me this week that I haven’t really had time to look too far into the future. My job now is to get the players ready for Sunderland.
Asked what United officials have told him on the plan heading forward, Giggs added: “They’ve just said to me, ‘You’ve got the job for four games’. That’s one down, three to go.
“As far as I’m concerned, that’s where my concentration is. I’ll do the job to the best of my ability and then after that we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.”
Giggs revealed that Saturday was a “dream day” as United enjoyed their most emphatic home win of the season.
He said: “I did enjoy it – 4-0, it’s a dream day for us. I’m really pleased with the performance. It’s always nice to end the game like we did, scoring goals and creating chances.
“The first half we were a little bit slow, so I just reminded them that the tempo needs to be quicker and we need to be a little bit faster. They reacted well to that.”
