Ryan Giggs was handing over the Manchester United managerial baton to Louis Van Gaal this evening and signed off in style with a 3-1 win against Hull City. He even made himself the first manager since Stuart McCall to sub himself on.
The Old Trafford hero got a standing ovation from all sides of the ground as he came on, yet he shown in his three games at the helm why he has all the qualities of a great manager.
Giggs showed that he was not scared to take tactical risks against Hull City in their Premier League clash this evening. James Wilson rewarded his manager’s faith with two goals and a fine debut.
Lawrence also made his first appearance in the Man United starting XI and the Welsh wizard could very well the successor to Giggs in the team, as the tricky midfielder as made a fine impression.
Marouane Fellaini looked rejuvenated and even the boss himself gave Robin Van Persie an assist. Van Gaal may need to come in to shake things up in the long term but Giggs has shown he is more than capable of one day holding the fort at Manchester United. He nearly even got himself on the scoresheet in injury time. The keeper even apologised for saving Ryan Giggs’s fine free kick.
