Ryan Giggs should be Manchester United manager

Published Add your comment

The man that discovered him believes Ryan Giggs should be the man to succeed David Moyes as Manchester United manager.

Dennis Schofield spotted the Welshman's talent more than three decades ago and now thinks he has spotted the gift of management in the Old Trafford legend.

Giggs has been tipped to retire from playing for most of the past three years, but he has managed to keep himself fit enough and playing at a high enough level to keep his place in the Manchester United first team squad.

It is quite an achievement for a man who turns 40 this coming Friday, though he has been planning for life after he stops playing and has been getting his necessary coaching badges to one day become a manager.

Schofield believes Giggs has developed an attitude towards people and tactical nous that will allow him to become a very successful manager once he does decide to hang up his boots.

Not only that, the former coach feels Giggs should be the man to succeed the successor of the Manchester United legend that handed him his debut.

“I can’t see how he can fail as a manager or coach, because his attitude towards other people and his way of dealing with them is fantastic,” he is quoted as saying in the The Mirror.

“I can see him becoming United boss one day because he’s liked by everyone, he knows the club inside out and he has the football brain.

“I’d like to see him as United boss one day, after David Moyes.”
