Sir Alex Ferguson has backed Ryan Giggs to get the Manchester United job on a permanent basis.

The 40-year-old winger was appointed as caretaker manager for their final four games after the Red Devils sacked David Moyes on Tuesday.

He’s got 20-odd years of experience at Manchester United

The Wales international is the club’s most decorated player after winning 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League crowns.

And United legend Ferguson believes Giggs is capable of succeeding Moyes, with the help of former players Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes.

“I think that [Giggs] is the one man they should go to, really,” Ferguson told the Telegraph. “He’s got 20-odd years of experience at Manchester United.

“I signed him as a kid at 13 years of age. He knows exactly what’s needed to be a Manchester United player and I was so pleased he brought Paul Scholes back in [to his staff], and Nicky Butt of course – two great professionals.

“They understand the club, they are hard workers, they are straight as a die. So you have got the right combinations there, there’s no doubt about that.”
