Alex Ferguson talks up Ryan Giggs's chances of permanent deal

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says that Ryan Giggs has the necessary qualities to manage the Red Devils on a permanent basis.

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is convinced that Ryan Giggs has the necessary qualities to manage the Red Devils on a permanent basis.

The 40-year-old is poised to preside over United's last four Premier League games of the season after replacing David Moyes on an interim basis earlier this week.

Having been a part of the club for some 27 years, though, Ferguson believes that the Welshman - along with assistants Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt - is an ideal candidate to take the reins in the long-term.

"I think that [Giggs] is the one man they should go to, really," the legendary Scot 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."

Giggs kicks off his caretaker role by welcoming Norwich City to Old Trafford at 5.30pm this evening.
