    Ryan Giggs press conference transcript first segment in full here for Red News readers


    RG. “Yeah, morning everyone! Just like to go on record to thank David, for giving me my first chance in coaching, it’s something that I’ll always remember when he rang me in the summer and asked me to come on board at Manchester United, obviously I was still playing, but he give me the opportunity for my first coaching role, secondly I would just like to say how proud I am to be managing for the remaining four games, the club that I’ve supported all my life and have been associated with for 25/26 years so it’s a proud moment for me, and one that I will enjoy.”

    Q. You’ve sat here many times asking our questions as a player, what’s it like to sit there as manager of Manchester United?


    RG “Erm, no it’s good, I’ve enjoyed the week, like I’ve just said, I’m proud, more than anything, it’s probably the proudest moment of my career and one that I am going to enjoy for the two and a half weeks there are remaining of the season, and bring back some smiles on the faces of the fans and just look forward to the game, just like as a player really, it’s prepare yourself as best you can during the week, and look forward to Saturday, I can’t wait for Saturday to come, 530 Norwich at home, I know the stadium will be bouncing, the players look really good in training this week, and they are all excited as well.”

    Q> How has training been?


    RG “ It’s been good, everyone is looking sharp, and I’ve just said to them ‘enjoy yourself, give the fans something to smile about in these remaining four games’ because it’s been a frustrating season and we want to end the season on a high.’

    Q. How difficult have the last four days been? I mean you’ve seen ups and downs at United in your time here but there’s been talk of your relationship with the previous manager and all sorts can you put that into some sort of context Ryan


    RG “No, it has been a difficult week for the club, obviously it was a shock to me on Tuesday, when I spoke to Ed and he informed that David was leaving, and then asked me to take over it’s just been a bit of a whirlwind week for me, but like I say one that I’ve enjoyed and one that has been different, it’s been chaotic, just getting a little taste it’s the fourth day in the job and you can never imagine what you have to do and the things that entail in becoming a manager, a Manchester United manager.”

    Q. Is this something you’d like to do on a permanent basis Ryan?


    RG “I’m just concentrating on the short time, the four games remaining, and that’s my main focus, the focus is on tomorrow against Norwich which is going to be a tough game because they are fighting for their lives, after that, I’ve not really thought about.”

    Q> For the rest of this season , are you still going to consider yourself as a player as well as a manager?


    RG “I’ve just given myself a five year contract! Laughs. So I’m using my power while I can! But yeah, I haven’t done much this week but yeah, yeah I’m still involved as a player as well.”

    Q. You’ve not been tempted to put yourself in as the first name on the teamsheet then?


    RG: “I’ve trained ok this week but the lads have looked sharp to be fair so no everyone has looked sharp and there’s 20 odd players who are in with a chance tomorrow.”

    Q. What have you looked to change this week in training?


    RG “Well just try and enjoy yourself and express yourself. I don’t know if I’ll be saying that if I was manager last week because the performance wasn’t great, but I”ve come into the job obviously and my immediate aim is to win Saturday so I felt the best way to do that is just try and make training as enjoyable as you can, go out and play, and they’ve done that.”

    Q. You mentioned smiles on faces Ryan, you want to put that back on the fans, is it going to be a different style of play the, as you would consider ‘a United style’ of play?


    RG “Well it’s going to be my philosophy, obviously Manchester United’s philosophy because I’ve been here for all my career and I want the players to play with passion, speed, tempo, be brave, imagination, all the things that I expect of a United player; work hard but most of all enjoy it because as a player if I know that I’m enjoying the game, I can express myself a lot more and that’s what I will be doing with the team tomorrow.”

    Q. How hurtful has it been to you, as a United fan, now you’re so proud to be the United manager for these games, but in terms of the way the season has gone, you’ve had to watch as a player/coach but kind of from afar in many ways as well?


    RG “It’s been a frustrating season, I think for everyone. You know you win together and you lose together, and like I say these four remaining games I want to bring some positivity back I want to put smiles on faces.We’ve got 3 home games at Old Trafford, where our form hasn’t been great and I want to see goals, I want to see tackles, I want to see players taking players on, I want to get the crowd up and I want the passion that should come with being a Manchester United player.”

    Q> Should you decide not to involve yourself in the playing squad, the big question is then is it a tracksuit or is it a suit?


    RG “I haven’t decided yet! You’ll have to wait and see.”
