David Moyes was right man for Manchester United insists Ferguson

“I hope at a few point Giggsy does take over”. I saw it as a player.



During his time as Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had to depend on Giggs on countless occasions.

Ferguson defended the appointment of former Everton boss Moyes, who was sacked after eight months in charge. And it was a phrase we used - “remember the geese”.

“I spoke to him personally and he was more than happy”, to get involved.

“With Eric Harrison as our coach, Sir Alex in the dressing-room after, but it’s very hard to pick one“. We’d like to have asked them what they felt about leaving a big club to go to a bigger club.

“The ironic thing is, when we won and were getting our photograph taken, this flawless “V” of geese flew right overhead”.

The 73-year-old said: “Why did they do that?”

“‘Yeah, that would definitely be a problem’, he’d say”. But his thirst to learn from one of the all-time great managers has helped shape him as one of the best of all time.

“He would go back at her and talk about her hair or something”. When the manager leaves and David Gill [the chief executive] leaves and a number of players retire like Scholesy [Paul Scholes] and Giggsy [Ryan Giggs], no matter what club it is, or how much money you have behind you, there is going to be a dip in trophies.

Giggs added: “They just pulled me and Paul Ince out, and these cardboard cutouts and where the hostage is”. The cardboard cut outs are the people holding us hostage. A couple of bullet sounds and the lights go on.

Giggs: “Then the lights come on and right next to us were four or five soldiers in SAS gear and night goggles”. It was a great experience.

“He’d never given us any indication that explosion was there”. It was a family with him. I would tell my players at the end of the game in no uncertain terms and I would always try to find the reason why we lost that game.

“I mean Jamie Redknapp’s got sunglasses on, but you know the most telling part of it is Roy Evans and [coach] Ron Moran had black suits on”.

“I want a world where children can grow up safe from violence, free from poverty and protected from preventable diseases”.

“Why did they do that?”

“No. There was something in me that said I need to stand by him because the world is after him”.

“What do you call it: arrogance?”
