Ryan Giggs' attempt to save David Moyes revealed

Ryan Giggs did his utmost to ward David Moyes away from avoidable troubles during the last few weeks of his damned tenure, but was ultimately ignored, according to the Daily Mail.

The report in question points to a specific case wherein Giggs advised Moyes not to punish the first-team trio of Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley and Ashley Young for being photographed partying into the early hours of the morning a short while after having been knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich.

It’s believed that the long-serving Welsh winger pleaded with his then-boss to show leniency towards the players in question, as he knew the news would not sit well with the rest of the team as the trio had not specifically broken any rules. However Moyes fined all three of the players and ordered them to complete extra training sessions last week.

The Mail infers that the incident was indicative of the manner in which the doomed United boss had fallen out of touch with his players, and that despite the best efforts of Giggs - who was coincidentally pushed out onto the periphery over the course of the season - he continued to take a hardline with the squad, which contributed to his downfall. He was relieved of his duties on Tuesday morning.

Giggs himself will oversee United’s last four games of the season, but the man who will in charge as of next year is anyone’s guess.
