Louis Saha has warned against Manchester United "losing spirit" after speaking at the launch of the Soccerex football conference that will be held in Manchester in September.

United 'veteran' Ryan Giggs has been put in temporary charge at Old Trafford following David Moyes' dismissal, assisted by Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville.

With no confirmation of the new manager, it's anyone's guess whether they'll be at the club next season, especially if the bookies favourite, Louis van Gaal takes charge. 

"If you lose those kind of players and that kind of spirit and charisma it would be a shame," Saha was quoted saying by BBC Sport. "After what happened with Sir Alex Ferguson's departure you may lose out in the same way if they leave."

The striker who scored 42 goals in 124 appearances for United from 2004 to 2008, feels there is more to their overall contribution than ability. 

This is the spirit of Manchester United. If Van Gaal arrives and decides to keep Giggs, the future of the rest of 'The Class' is less certain. Saha believes executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward must handle carefully.

"You have to make a choice, there is no in between, If you pick someone you can't force him to take a number two and number three," added the Frenchman. "You have to accept the way they work."

This will be on the minds of every Red Devils fan, who are desperate for the club to rise again next season. Do you think the spirit's gone? Or do you agree that Manchester United will never die.
