Giggs thrilled by Man Utd reception

Manchester United interim manager Ryan Giggs has said that he felt humbled by the reception he received as they beat Norwich City 4-0 in his first game as boss, BBC Sport has reported.

The Welshman, who is Man Utd’s most decorated player, was given a rousing reception as he came out on to the Old Trafford pitch for the first of his four games in temporary charge, with a new permanent manager set to be appointed in the summer. Dutch national team Head Coach Louis van Gaal is the leading contender at present.


The game was dour for 40 minutes until Norwich defender Steven Whitaker pulled down Danny Welbeck, and Wayne Rooney converted from the spot. Man Utd had much more pace about their game in the second period and eventually eased past the strugglers.


Rooney scored his second of the afternoon on 49 minutes, curling the ball past John Ruddy after he had been given too much time and space by the Norwich defence. Two close range efforts from substitute Juan Mata completed a victory which equalled Man Utd’s heaviest at Old Trafford this season, which also came against Norwich in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.


After the game, Giggs said: "All the years I walked out at Old Trafford, I've never felt like that. I felt 10 feet tall. I enjoyed it and 4-0 is a dream day for us so I'm really pleased."


"Obviously I was happy we were 1-0 up at half-time but not particularly with the performance. I said to the players they had trained hard, maybe too hard, and it's been an emotional week. I reminded them we play with speed and tempo and when we do, not many can live with us. They reacted well to that."
