Ryan Giggs this morning took his first press conference as interim Manchester United boss, and said that being offered the position was the proudest moment of his life.
Whilst sharing a number of jokes with his audience the Welshman played down talk of pressure or stress on his players, and affirmed that he was in a buoyant mood ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Norwich.
Meanwhile Arsene Wenger has revealed that the ball is firmly in Bacary Sagna’s court when it comes to deciding his own future in north London.
Varying reports have suggested that he could yet opt to leave the club this summer, with Manchester City believed to be interested in taking him on. However Wenger said he would not stand in Sagna’s way, and would allow the Frenchman to make his own mind up.
Chelsea seem to have finally ended the talk over Frank Lampard’s future at the club, as reports claim he is poised to be offered a new one-year deal.
The 35-year-old has been in and out of Jose Mourinho’s squad this campaign, and in some quarters it was said that he would be seeing out the remainder of his career in the MLS. However it appears he will still earn close to £125,000-a-week by staying in west London for another season.
