End of an era as United legend Giggs quits club

first_imgMourinho, who had already been lined up to replace van Gaal after the Dutchman failed to qualify United for next season’s Champions League, is keen to have his own backroom staff along with him which means Rui Faria replacing Giggs.Giggs, who Mourinho reportedly suspected of disloyalty and spinning against Moyes and then van Gaal when their fortunes slumped, was offered a different role but declined it.But there was no rancour in Giggs’ statement, released by United, towards the Portuguese manager.“I want to congratulate Jose Mourinho on his appointment as manager of the world’s biggest club,” said Giggs.“There are only a handful of proven winners at the very highest level and Jose is unquestionably one of them. I know the fans will welcome him.”Ed Woodward, executive vice chairman, paid a handsome tribute to United’s faithful servant.“Ryan’s place in the history of Manchester United is assured,” said Woodward.“He has been a constant presence at the club since 1987 and during his playing days, regularly delighted crowds; first with his dazzling wing play and later with his intelligence and ability to dictate a game.“He has all the attributes to be a terrific manager in the future.”Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 The 42-year-old Welshman — an integral part of the great side built by Alex Ferguson and who made a record 963 appearances — is keen to pursue a managerial career, having been assistant manager during the unsuccessful spells of David Moyes and then Louis van Gaal.“It has not been a decision that I have made lightly.

Manchester United expects, deserves, nothing less.“This is why it is a huge decision for me to step away from the club that has been my life since the age of 14.” Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP |Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is to leave after almost 30 years of service, the English Premier League club announced on Saturday in a widely expected move following Jose Mourinho’s appointment as manager.last_img read more
