Ryan Giggs calls on old buddy Paul Scholes to help him out at Manchester United

Ryan Giggs has wasted no time in making his mark as Manchester United manager, having called on former team-mate Paul Scholes to help him out at Old Trafford.

Giggs will serve as interim manager until the end of the season following the departure of David Moyes yesterday and it was confirmed by the club today that Scholes, as well as Nicky Butt and Phil Neville, helped Giggs out at training this morning with coaches Steve Round and Jimmy Lumsden having also left the club along with Moyes.

Scholes, who finally hung up his boots at the end of last season, had been helping Butt in his role as a coach with the Manchester United under-19s and under-21s this season. With Phil Neville staying at the club (for the time being at least) despite having been brought in as a coach by Moyes, four members of the famed class of ’92 youth team will have a large part to play in the running of the senior team for the rest of the season.

But hey, why stop there? David Beckham might be busy and Gary Neville has a World Cup to look forward to with England, but we’re sure Keith Gillespie wouldn’t mind filling the water bottles, Robbie Savage could look after the kit, Chris Casper can ghost around offering defensive advice and Ben Thornley can do the all-important job of looking after the corner flags.

Why not?
