Ryan Giggs: Becoming Man United interim manager proudest moment of my life
Manchester United interim manager Ryan Giggs wants the Red Devils to win their remaining three Premier League games
Ryan Giggs has described becoming Manchester United’s caretaker manager as the “proudest moment” of his life.
The 40-year-old was appointed on a temporary basis after the 13-time Premier League champions sacked David Moyes on Tuesday.
My mindset is on Norwich first this weekend and then the remaining three games. After that, who knows what happens?
Giggs has brought in his fellow Class of 92 team-mates Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville to help him during the final games of the season.
“I have got to say it is the proudest moment of my life,” Giggs told MUTV.
“I have supported Manchester United all my life, I have been a part of the club since I was 13. I am proud, I am happy, a little nervous and, just like playing, can’t wait for the game on Saturday.”
Giggs starts his United reign with a winnable fixture against relegation-threatened Norwich City at Old Trafford on Saturday.
And the former Wales international underlined the value of the Europa League to the Red Devils as he targets a top-six finish.
“My mindset is on Norwich first this weekend and then the remaining three games. After that, who knows what happens?” Giggs continued.
He added: “We want European nights at Old Trafford…it is as simple as that.”
Giggs also backed the United squad to showcase their talent against the Canaries after a series of below-par displays.
“The reaction in training has been good, so let us try to have a good end to a frustrating and disappointing season. My message is that I trust the players, I know what they are capable of and I want them to go out and show it on Saturday.”
