Sir Alex Ferguson has backed Manchester United star Ryan Giggs to become the next full time manager of the Red Devils, according to reports.
Ferguson picked David Moyes as his predecessor, resulting in a 'The Chosen One' banner gracing the Stretford End for a large proportion of the season. But now, with Moyes proving to be a dire miscalculation on Ferguson's part, he has turned to his trusted prodigy Ryan Giggs.
Giggs was offered the interim job in the wake of Moyes leaving. On Friday he held his first press conference as a manager stating that this is one of the proudest moments of his life.
The 40-year-old may not be your typical Premier League manager. It is rare for such a large club to go for such an inexperienced candidate yet, already Giggs has proven to be a fans favourite.
As many fans found themselves disgruntled with a lack of passion in the team this season, Giggs has announced that's just how he wants United to play - like they want to be there.
What is clear is that Giggs has the ability to bring back the Ferguson ideologies that seem to have eluded the club this year under Moyes, starting by bringing back Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt into the United set up.
Ferguson himself has, according to the Guardian, privately insisted that Giggs is the man to turn to for the long-term. The ex-United manager has highlighted just how long Giggs has been with the club, meaning he has experienced everything - the highs (99') and the lows that come with top flight football.
Giggs knows just what it is to be a United player, to walk out onto that pitch wearing the red shirt with expectations weighing down on your shoulders - experience that money cannot buy.
Giggs has three games to prove he can hack it as a long-term Manchester United manager and with Ferguson's backing it may just prove to be enough to get the Welshman to sign a permanent contract. The win over Norwich on Saturday was the perfect start.
