Patrice Evra demands Man United squad get behind Ryan Giggs
Manchester United defender Patrice Evra wants to help Ryan Giggs get his reign off to a positive start on Saturday
Patrice Evra has urged the Manchester United squad to stick behind caretaker manager Ryan Giggs.
The 40-year-old winger was appointed as interim head coach after the Red Devils decided to sack David Moyes on Tuesday.
A lot of people are still calling him Ryan but he is the boss and we have to make sure we are right behind him and the club
And long-serving left-back Evra wants the Red Devils to be united ahead of their clash against Norwich City at Old Trafford on Saturday.
“It’s really sad, but we have to move on,” Evra told MUTV.
“There’s a new manager in place – that’s Ryan Giggs – and we have to make sure we stick behind the coach. A lot of people are still calling him Ryan but he is the boss and we have to make sure we are right behind him and the club.”
Evra backed United legend Giggs to inspire the players alongside his staff Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes as United aim to finish in the Europa League places.
“Giggs is a natural,” Evra added.
“Players like him and Paul Scholes inspire the young players, and the senior players too. This is why they will fight to make sure that Ryan picks them for the team. As a person and a player, he instantly gets that respect which is why it wasn’t weird to see Ryan Giggs as manager.”
