"Ryan Giggs, Ryan Giggs, running down the wing, Ryan Giggs, Ryan Giggs, running down the wing, feared by the blues, loved by the reds, Ryan Giggs, Ryan Giggs, Ryan Giggs."

The wonder boy was adored as a player but has now become the man in charge of his boyhood club. It may only be until the end of the season but could this be his foot in the door to a managerial job? 

It has always been said that Ryan Giggs has had an amazing footballing brain and it has been proved by playing top flight football for 24 years. Now, albeit not for long, here is his chance to prove it on a higher level.

He has had only a year in coaching but seemed to have more of an influence over the players than David Moyes did. 

The first looks of Giggs as a manger came in his first press conference, the Manchester United legend seemed calm, composed and dignified.

This is a complete contrast from David Moyes, admittedly Moyes was suffering a horrendous first, and only year, at Manchester United but Ryan Giggs was going through the trauma as well as his blood runs Manchester United.

Mr.Giggs even managed to crack a few jokes for his audience by saying he had given himself a five year contract but with his fitness levels I reckon he still could.

He was also gracious in thanking his predecessor David Moyes for giving him the chance at a coaching role. The main focal point from the interview was Giggs saying: "It is my philosophy and it is Manchester United's philosophy."

This was music to a Manchester United fan's ears. United have always attacked, even if it was by counter, they have always done it but under Moyes they lacked that certain swagger they had under Ferguson.

The main question is will Giggs bring that back and end the season on a high?

With hindsight Manchester United may have looked back and decided to hire Giggs prior to Moyes as the man to carry on the Manchester United flag from Sir Alex Ferguson because the Welsh wizard was being groomed as a Manchester United manager from the age of 17.

Giggs did not have the experience of being in the back room and if he did not succeed then I severely doubt Manchester United would have turned their back on him, they would have nurtured him back by implementing him into a different back room role.

It was shown to work at Barcelona with Guardiola who has a great footballing brain and a passion for Barcelona.

Giggs only has four games in charge of his beloved Manchester United and he will regard them as the biggest in his career because he is given the chance to show his credentials on the next level.

Giggs may not get the Manchester United job this time round with bigger names like Louis Van Gaal, Carlo Ancelotti, Jurgen Klopp and Diego Simone being linked but I will go on record as saying this will not be the only time we see the boy wonder from Cardiff prowling the Old Trafford sideline.
