Ryan Giggs was appointed interim manager of Manchester United, shortly after the club announced the sacking of David Moyes.

"Following the departure of David Moyes as manager, Manchester United has announced that Ryan Giggs, the club's most decorated player, will assume responsibility for the first team until a permanent appointment can be made," read a statement on the United website.

"The club will make no further comment on this process until it is concluded."

Giggs, 40, made his United debut in March 1991 and has made a record 962 appearances for the club, winning 13 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, four FA Cups, four League Cups and one Fifa Club World Cup.

He has no previous managerial experience, but has combined his role as a player with a position on United's coaching staff since the start of the current campaign. - AFP
