Wales boss Ryan Giggs has explained why David Moyes didn’t succeed at Manchester United despite being fronted by Sir. Alex Ferguson.
Giggs believes that United had bigger ambitions and Moyes inherited an ageing squad; factors that he felt were led to the downfall of the current West Ham United boss.
The former Everton boss, of course, did not last the season before he was sacked and Giggs took over on an interim basis.
Speaking to the Coaches’ voice, Giggs said: "There were two ways of looking at the job that David had inherited. Usually, a new manager takes charge of a team that is struggling or has had a bad run of games. Instead, he was taking over at the champions.
"But it was also a team with some key players coming towards the end of their careers at the club. Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic, myself-we were all approaching the end in one way or another, and that would obviously have been difficult for any manager coming in. Plus, every coach wants to put their own stamp on a team."
The United great was a 13-time league winner under Sir Alex Ferguson before taking on a player-coach role when Moyes replaced the legendary Scot in 2013.
