One of the biggest sports club in the world has a new manager
is now playing manager
Some days ago Ryan Giggs was appointed as United’s interim manager, given the post for the next four matches. Although he won 4-0 against Norwich at Old Trafford on Saturday, the club want a manager with a proven record of securing titles at elite European clubs and has lots of experience of dealing with top-class players in the biggest clubs in Europe.
It is only in this category that the club executive believe Giggs falls short, and he himself concurs. United are intent, though, that he should remain as central person to the 20-times champions as they move forward, whatever the new full-time manager decides. Van Gaal fits the club’s required profile, though United continue to keep their options open, with Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti remaining on the radar.
If Real were to be knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern in the semi-final second leg in Germany – the Italian’s team have a 1-0 advantage from last week’s first game – United believe Ancelotti’s potential candicacy would become stronger, though he has said no to the job
