DAVID MOYES FIRED RYAN GIGGS HIRED
Just Barely Eleven months after being handed a six-year contract as Sir Alex Ferguson’s hand-picked successor , David Moyes seems to be having ill luck as it appears that those in charge at Old Trafford have finally seen enough. According to widespread reports on Monday, a 2-0 defeat to Everton has proven the final straw for Manchester United’s owners, the Glazer family , and vice-president, Ed Woodward, with manager David Moyes set to be relieved of his duties any time now.
The Glazers family have reportedly lost patience with David Moyes, and the Manchester United boss could be sacked before the English Premier League season ends. ESPN reported on Monday that the Glazers have already made a decision to sack Moyes, and that his firing is imminent after several meetings took place on Monday morning. The 50-year-old’s reign could end before Saturday’s Old Trafford encounter with Norwich City.His backroom staff, appointed in place of Ferguson’s coaches Mike Phelan and Rene Meulensteen, are also likely to move on.
The BBC is among the outlets reporting that, while Manchester United have denied that Moyes has been sacked, they refused to comment on speculation that he soon will be. ESPN have been told by sources that he will be fired “imminently.” With qualification for the Champions League now mathematically impossible, United can already begin planning for next season. The club has apparently decided that Moyes is not the man to lead the club forward and be handed the responsibility of spending the vast amount of money that is thought to be available this summer.
During the meeting, several players reportedly expressed frustration over Moyes, who was personally hired by legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson last summer. Sources added that the club’s owner have been mulling sacking Moyes since Manchester United absorbed a 2-1 loss against Swansea City in the FA Cup on Jan. 5 at Old Trafford.
On the other hand, the Daily Mail reported that the original plan was to sack Moyes after the season, but his firing could come in the coming days, or even by the end of the day. Daily Mail sources also indicated that Ryan Giggs will take over once Moyes gets his pink slip. “It is understood that the plan now is to sack Moyes at the end of the season but the situation could now come to a head later on Monday or in the coming days. If the former Everton boss is sacked before the season’s end, club legend Ryan Giggs will be asked to take over team affairs,” the Daily Mail reported.
The Telegraph added that the club will look for an immediate replacement after the current season with sources saying that Borussia Dortmund Jurgen Klopp could be the top candidate to take over at Old Trafford. Klopp is favored to land the job in favor of other rumored candidates like Louis van Gaal, Diego Simeone, and Giggs, who is expected to have a strong backing, but his lack of experience could hurt his chances of getting the job.
Now Giggs who has made 962 United appearances since making his debut as a 17-year-old in March 1991 and winning everything there is to win in football – seems set to take his first step into management, however short it might be for now. Giggs, who won 64 caps for his country, was twice approached to be Wales boss before Gary Speed and Chris Coleman landed the job, but told the FAW he wished to concentrate upon playing at the time.
Is Ryan Giggs the right man for the job ? Would he bring back the lost victory and reputation ? what is your opinion.
