Even though there has been wide spread speculation about Mourinho joining Manchester United, Dwight Yorke is the latest to throw his weight behind Louis Van Gaal and Ryan Giggs. There are many associated with Manchester United who still publicly back Van Gaal like Sir Alex Ferguson himself.
Dwight Yorke said,
“I think we have a very experienced manager in our current position,”
“We know he has one more year on his contract. We have to wait and see where that is going to go.”
“If the manager were to leave the football club at the end of his contract, then my appointment would be Ryan Giggs, for sure. He is somebody who is really knowledgeable about the football club and would gain the respect.”
“He’s also had three years as an assistant now. I feel the time is right, as soon as Van Gaal’s contract finishes.”
“At the moment, the team is not where we want to be but at the same time, we are in a relatively decent position to try and make something of the end of the season.”
No Man United fan would agree that Van Gaal should be given one more year an opinion possibly not shared by the decision makers at Old Trafford. Ryan Giggs on the other hand is inexperienced and should have left United to manage another Premier League club before he is given the Old Trafford job. No amount of time as the assistant manager will prepare you for the big job as his friend Gary Neville found out at Valencia. The biggest problem for Woodward is that he can’t afford another failure so Giggs might not get the backing due to his lack of experience.
