Ex-Wales international Robbie Savage feels Manchester United should not consider Ryan Giggs as a permanent manager as the club need an experienced head going into the summer transfer window.

Giggs was named the interim manager of the Red Devils after club parted ways with David Moyes, who was appointed just 10 months ago.

And with Manchester United aiming to overhaul their squad this summer, Savage is of the opinion that the Old Trafford outfit are in need of an experienced manager.

However, the former midfielder thinks Manchester United should keep his compatriot as an assistant manager, who will be able to learn the trade from a more experienced boss in charge.


"In the future, Ryan can be a successful manager", Savage told BBC Sport.

"But going forward it's such a huge transfer window for United that they need an experienced man at the helm.

"Keeping Ryan as assistant manager would be a great idea. He has United in his blood and has won countless trophies.

"He would be able to learn the ropes from a manager who has won trophies and been there and done it."

Manchester United, who presently find themselves seventh in the Premier League with 57 points from 34 games, are next up against strugglers Norwich City on Saturday.
