Ryan Giggs made a winning start to his reign as interim Manchester United manager after a 4-0 victory over Norwich City.

Wayne Rooney scored either side of half-time before substitute Juan Mata scored twice in 10 minutes to end a difficult week in positive fashion.

Here is a selection of our favourite Twitter reaction from the professionals in chronological order to Giggs’s dream start.

Former United striker Michael Owen ‏(@themichaelowen) comments on his former team-mate’s attire: “Giggs has made the first good decision of his managerial career – to wear a suit.”

Ex-Everton star Peter Reid (‏@reid6peter) reckons United are lucky to make the breakthrough: “Never a pen, joke.”

And Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler (‏@Robbie9Fowler) agrees: “@reid6peter I thought that…”

Ex-United defender Viv Anderson ‏(@Anderson_Viv) feels it is comfortable for the new manager: “All going good for Giggsy so far! #MUFC”

England legend Gary Lineker ‏(@GaryLineker) underlines a vital quality in a good manager: “Giggs is a natural! His first substitution scores within minutes. Give him the job now.”

Comedian Jack Whitehall (‏@jackwhitehall) feels for a certain Scot: “Some where in the world right now I suspect David Moyes is punching a wall.”

Jamaican sprinter and United fan Usain St. Leo Bolt ‏@usainbolt is hoping this is the beginning of something special: “Could this be the beginning of something great??? @ManUtd #classof92”

Olympian Dai Greene (@DaiGreene) is pleased for his fellow Welshman: “Super Ryan Giggs.”
