Ryan Giggs not capable of managing Manchester United - says his own father

There's nothing like a father-son bond, but Ryan Giggs and his dad Danny Wilson seemingly have nothing like a father-son bond.

In an explosive interview with The Sun on Sunday, Wilson rubbished his son's ability to manage Manchester United due to a well-documented fling with his brother's wife.

Wilson, a former Rugby player, said: "To be a manager you have to have trust. I don't see how the players can trust him after what he did to his brother. You judge a man by his actions.

"If you know him to be a cheat, unfaithful and a liar, how do you trust the man? I wouldn't trust him to run a bath - let alone Manchester United."

Giggs has been touted as a candidate for the manager's job having been handed the reigns on an interim basis following the sacking of David Moyes.

The 40-year-old enjoyed a near perfect start to managerial life as his side romped to a 4-0 win against lowly Norwich City at Old Trafford yesterday, but his dad believes his personal life should prevent him getting the job.

Lifelong Manchester United fan Wilson said: "He's dull as dishwater. He's got no personality. He bores me to death when he talks. He's not cut out to be a manager in my eyes."

In 1989 a flying winger by the name of Ryan Wilson captained England schoolboys, but he soon adopted his mothers name due to his parents split.

Since then Giggs has gone on to become the most decorated player in British football, but Wilson was in unforgiving mood when speaking to the Sun, he said: "I should be on top of the world that my son has taken over Man United. I wish I had a big smile on my face.

"It's a sad state of affairs. What he did was the lowest."

It appears Wilson isn't the only person disappointed with Giggs' appointment, when questioned about what may happen following Moyes departure, his brother Rhodri reportedly said: "The rat will slither in there somehow."
