Lindegaard: Giggs can be Man Utd’s Guardiola

Anders Lindegaard has praised Ryan Giggs for his early work as interim Manchester United manager and suggested the former Wales international could emulate Pep Guardiola at Barcelona, according to the Daily Telegraph.


Ryan Giggs


Lindegaard has written a column for a Danish betting website in which he revealed the effect of Giggs’ team talk prior to United’s 4-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday. Lindegaard added that Giggs has long had the authority of a manager.


“Ryan Giggs has always held a kind of professional distance to his teammates,” Lindegaard said. “He opened his mouth, when it was relevant, and people have always listened. What we have seen in the first week has been more than convincing and the parallels with Sir Alex Ferguson are striking.


“It is clear that Ryan Giggs has been learning from history's most awe-inspiring football manager,” the goalkeeper continued. “His last speech before the team went on the pitch before the match against Norwich, was spine-tingling in a way that I have only experienced from Sir Alex.


“Some might question whether it can work to go from being a team-mate to the manager from one day to the next. Normally, I have my reservations, but in Giggs' case, it is another matter.


“It probably sounds rather naive and impetuous, and I understand people scepticism about any conclusion drawn from the results of four workouts, a game and a day off, but to me we are dealing with a new Guardiola.


“The question is whether he (Giggs) is already ready to meet the enormous potential he possesses. Fortunately, it's not my decision to make, but whatever the club decides, I'm sure that everyone on and around the team will respect it.”


Giggs stepped in to replace David Moyes after the former Everton manager was sacked last week following United’s disappointing first season without Ferguson. Last season’s Premier League champions are seventh in the table, 10 points away from the top four with two games to play and 20 points short of league leaders Liverpool.
