Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Manch­ester United mid­fielder Ryan Giggs has been placed in tem­po­rary charge of first team af­fairs af­ter the sack­ing of man­ager David Moyes yes­ter­day, the English Pre­mier League club said.

Giggs, 40, had been an as­sis­tant to Moyes dur­ing the Scot’s ill-fated 10-month spell in charge of the cham­pi­ons and will step in for the fi­nal four league fix­tures while the club de­cides on a per­ma­nent re­place­ment, United said in a state­ment.

The cham­pi­ons are sev­enth in the ta­ble, 23-points be­hind lead­ers Liver­pool, and host Nor­wich City on Satur­day then face Sun­der­land and Hull City be­fore a fi­nal trip to Southamp­ton.

Re­ac­tion to Manch­ester United’s sack­ing of man­ager David Moyes yes­ter­day:

“There is no dis­guis­ing that the foot­ball this sea­son has been poor, the re­sults have been poor. As a fan, I’ve not en­joyed watch­ing it. I’m sure David Moyes him­self hasn’t en­joyed watch­ing it.” - For­mer United de­fender Gary Neville.

“The play­ers have to take mas­sive re­spon­si­bil­ity. They are the ones out on the foot­ball pitch. I never once in my 18-year ca­reer at United turned around af­ter the game and thought ‘you lost us that game, boss’. It’s al­ways the play­ers.” - Neville.
