Ryan Giggs introduced as 'David' at Manchester United presser

There was an awkward start to Ryan Giggs's first press conference as Manchester United's interim manager when the Old Trafford club's press officer mistakenly introduced him to the media as 'David'.

The Red Devils representative was quick to correct herself, prompting an outburst of laughter from the 40-year-old Welshman, who accepted the accidental error in good faith.

Giggs will take charge of his first game when Manchester United take on Norwich City in the Premier League this weekend, after succeeding David Moyes as first-team boss, following the former Everton coach's sacking on Tuesday.

Among the other light-hearted questions that the veteran midfielder faced was if he would be inclined to pick himself in the starting XI on Saturday, and whether he would opt for a suit or tracksuit when taking his place in the dugout at Carrow Road.

Giggs revealed that he'd not yet decided on his match-day attire and jokingly intimated in his new position of power one of the first things he planned to do was offer himself a new five-year playing contract.
