Giggs named interim United boss

Ryan Giggs has been placed in interim

charge of Manchester United after David

Moyes left the club on Tuesday.

United legend Giggs, who was part of Moyes'

backroom staff in a player-coach capacity,

will oversee United's first-team affairs on a

temporary basis until a permanent successor

is found.

A club statement read: "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."

Moyes' reign at Old Trafford came to an end

less than 12 months into his six-year

contract following Sunday's 2-0 defeat at

the Scot's former club Everton, a result that

guaranteed reigning English champions

United cannot qualify for next season's

UEFA Champions League.

His departure was announced via the club's

official Twitter account, with United

thanking Moyes for his "hard work, honesty

and integrity" during his short tenure.

United sit seventh in the Premier League

with four matches remaining, 23 points

adrift of leaders Liverpool.
