Football: Carlo is the man for United

Football: Carlo is the man for United

When I arrived at Manchester United in 1991, Ryan Giggs was just about to embark on his first full season as a member of the first-team squad.

The Welsh wizard was only 18 at the time and we called him "Norman Bates" (the character from the film 'Psycho') - because he had crazy eyes.

He was a typical "Mancunian scally" - sharp with his tongue and quick-witted.

Twenty-three years later, he is now manager of one of the biggest clubs in football.

It has been a turbulent week at Old Trafford with the dismissal of David Moyes and all the fuss and drama over who will succeed him.

My former teammate Giggs has been tasked to manage the team for the last four Premier League games of a chaotic season for the Red Devils and no less than Sir Alex Ferguson has thrown his support behind the Welshman to be given the role on a permanent basis.

I hope Giggs enjoys his four games in charge but, right after that, United must find a new man for the job.

The 40-year-old is not ready to manage United.

United are in desperate need of experience at the moment as they look to rebuild next season and get back into the top tier of English football.
