When Ryan Giggs was appointed as the interim manager of Manchester United manager some inevitable chatter emerged to question his suitability for the role given previous off-field indiscretions. Giggs famously had an eight-year affair with the wife of his brother - something that wrecked one marriage and almost ruined his own.

But Giggs has been granted some surprise backing in his pursuit of the Manchester United job on a full-time basis with brother Rhodri, the man he betrayed so significantly, claiming the appointment would be ‘perfect’ for the club.

The Giggs brothers have not spoken since the affair was so explosively revealed in the press three years ago but Rhodri claims he holds a grudge no longer and is excited by Ryan being in charge of Manchester United.

“I used to hate him. But I’m past grudges and getting on with my life,” Rhodri told The Sun.

“He’s a rubbish brother and an even worse husband. But I think Ryan’s perfect for the United job. His appointment is a good one and it’s exciting, shown by the 4-0 [against Norwich]. I’m pleased for him.

“And in Sir Alex Ferguson’s eyes he can do no wrong — as shown by the support Fergie gave him when he had his affairs.”

Giggs assumed control following the sacking of David Moyes last week and witnessed his team comfortably defeat Norwich at Old Trafford on Saturday. Wayne Rooney scored twice as did Juan Mata, who had initially been left on the bench by the new manager.
