As United struggle to win over fans and with the complaints of lacklustre football ringing in the ears of everyone at the club, Louis Van Gaal has taken the step of giving his assistant more responsibility with the first team according to the latest reports.
The Sun’s back page reads: Ryan Giggs has taken his chance to put a smile back on the face of Manchester United.
In a bid to pull them [United] out of a slump, Louis van Gaal’s No2 got more authority in training and on match days.
It’s no real surprise that Van Gaal has trusted Giggs with trying to reignite the squad as despite last week’s win over Swansea there’s still a lot of work to do to convince fans the right management team is in place. Even the suggestion that Giggs would succeed the Dutchman, once a popular idea among United supporters is now being doubted as the Welshman gets tarred with the brush of ineptitude associated with Van Gaal’s reign. If Giggs can help turn things around at United then it may just save both his and his boss’s future.
