Manchester United interim manager Ryan Giggs is not one of the contenders to become the next full-time manager at the club, according to the BBC.

Manchester United sacked David Moyes yesterday after a series of poor performances that pushed down last season’s champions to seventh in the league table in this campaign.

Giggs took over as the interim manager at Manchester United yesterday, with Nicky Butt and Phil Neville as assistants.

Former Manchester United youth player Robbie Savage believes that Giggs is inexperienced in football management and the Red Devils need a more experienced head to steer the club out of their turbulence.


"In the future, Ryan can be a successful manager", said Savage. "But going forward it's such a huge transfer window for United that they need an experienced man at the helm.”

Sir Alex Ferguson pulled off a coup when he signed Giggs in 1987 from under the noses of their crosstown rivals Manchester City. The Welshman was initially with the Manchester City youth set-up between 1985 and 1987.

Giggs holds the club record at Manchester United for most appearances with 962 appearances in all competition for the club since 1991 and has won 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League crowns, four FA Cups and three League Cups with the Red Devils.
