Manchester United have appointed Ryan Giggs as the club's interim manager until the end of the season following the dismissal of David Moyes.
Moyes was sacked by Old Trafford officials, following a disastrous debut campaign, this morning - and, with coaches Steve Round and Jimmy Lumsden also leaving the club, Giggs will now assume the role of player-manager with current youth team coach Nicky Butt as his assistant, according to the Mirror.
Giggs will subsequently oversee United's remaining four games of the 2013/14 campaign, starting on Saturday against Norwich City at Old Trafford.
The Welshman, who has made more appearances than any other player in Manchester United's history, will then take charge of the club's two remaining home games against Sunderland, Hull City before the final day of the season trip to Southampton.
Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal is the current favourite to become Manchester United's next permanent manager, while Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled himself out of contention.
But will the Glazer family be tempted to give the job to Giggs on a full-time basis if he wins his four matches in charge?
