Interim manager Ryan Giggs hasn’t ruled out the possibility of playing for Manchester United before the season ends.
Manchester United host relegation battlers Sunderland at Old Trafford tonight as they look to end the season on a high under new manager Ryan Giggs. Sunderland though, are battling for their survival and will make it difficult for the home side have already defeated Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last month and following that up with a convincing win over Cardiff in the last game.
Ryan Giggs is unlikely to hold on to the managerial job beyond this season with Louis van Gaal expected to arrive at Old Trafford in the summer, but the Welsh legend would want to make sure that Manchester United finish the season on a high and maintain the momentum they gained with their 4-0 win over Norwich in the last match. Ryan Giggs also hasn’t ruled out the possibility to make an appearance for the Red Devils on the pitch, as a player, in the remaining three matches of the season.
“I’m still training and doing bits and pieces so I’m still in the frame on maybe playing in the remaining games. I’m just trying to keep myself fit and try to win every game. I might not get back into the team!” – The Manchester United manager said in his pre-match press conference.
Ryan Giggs has also insisted that nothing has changed regarding his role as the interim manager of the side and stated that he will discuss his future in this job once the season ends.
“Nothing has changed – it’s until the end of the season and we’ll chat when that’s over. My main concentration is on Sunderland tomorrow and the remaining two games.” – Giggs added.
When asked about the reason why he chose to wear suit instead of the regular tracksuit during the match against Norwich, Giggs said: “Most footballers are pretty superstitious so suit again I think, unless I’m playing!”
Ryan Giggs will face a lot of his former teammates when Old Trafford hosts Sunderland tonight. The Welsh winger has welcomed back former Manchester United players John O’Shea, Wes Brown and Phil Bardsley ahead of this game and stressed on the importance of their contribution as a player to this club.
“It’s great to see Wes and Sheasy back and Phil. The service those players gave to the club will never be forgotten. They were great players.” – He said.
