    Cant blame Mourinho for wanting to start his career on a fresh plate.
    Giggs needs to stop hanging around and actually go out and manage. Man thinking he's the next Pep smh.

    No idea tbh. Mourinho and his backroom staff have been successful wherever they have gone. What they're doing together works and I wouldn't attempt to fix it.

    Why is Giggs the logical candidate? He shouldn't be considered as manager of this club. He has next to no experience being the main man in charge. I find it logical to want to remove someone that is potentially going to attempt to stab you in the back if/when things go wrong.

    SAF is the past. The club has to stop living in the past and move on.
    Last couple of stints haven't been that successful - two sackings and the tenures lasting 3 years and 2.5 years. In both cases the playing squad basically revolting against the manager.

    But hey if you want to put all your eggs in the Mourinho basket before it gets crushed..

    How exactly will Giggs help him?

    Do tell how his non-existent managerial expertise will assist Mourinho.

    Relationship with the current player squad
    Relationship with the club
    Closer relationship to SAF

    There was a reason why Moyes and LVG decided to keep him in their team?

    Just because he doesn't have current managerial expertise doesn't mean he doesn't have experience in the game - everyone had to start somewhere (even the likes of Mourinho and Guardiola). Or is Giggs suddenly a lemon who knows nothing about the game?

    Tbh having a former quality attacking player in his team might even help improve Mourinho's dull style of play.

    Really made a difference didn't it.
    Everyone does have to start somewhere. Why should be suddenly come into the United job on the back of a 10 game managerial career?
    Best for him if he actually goes out and manages somewhere so he gets the experience. Just because you know the game doesn't mean you'll automatically become a top manager. Thought Neville debunked that theory, albeit his situation was different.

    Who knows, maybe Man Utd would've been even *****er without Giggs?

    Giggs isn't just a random nobody who's been given the job.. 24 years at the club and others obviously saw something in him. You would've **** all over Guardiola's appointment at Barcelona wouldn't you?

    Neville just made a bad decision in the club he picked. He wouldn't have taken it if his mate Lim wasn't the owner.

    Guardiola managed the B team for a year and inherited one of the best teams in the world.

    Giggs has clearly had sights on the manager's job since Moyes was sacked hence him accepting the number two job with a successon plan to become manager in 2017. Now that hasn't happened, and he still wants the job, I don't see why Mourinho would keep him anywhere near the first team because as soon as things go wrong (hopefully not too soon!) the media attention will turn to Giggs as it did towards the end of LVG's reign hence the 'Giggs in managerial mode' joke whenever United were losing and Giggs was on the touchline giving instructions when he rarely ever did when United were winning.

    No top elite level manager would really accept a club legend, like Giggs, to join as a number two for the aforementioned reasons above. Giggs' role under the LVG set-up as to assess the opposition and relay that to the players and last season showed Giggs was doing the job well....

    There are other candidates around who could join Jose's set up and offer just as, if not more, valuable input than Giggs namely the under-21 coach Warren Joyce, who received plaudits for his work with that age range last season; Rio Ferdinand has been linked and with his personality, might work nicely with the younger players and he wasn't that bad a defender...; or if Gary Neville wants to come back under Mourinho as a coach rather than an assistant - above point returns again but they seem to have got a good friendship which might help.

    Giggs would either be better off to accept a different role, work behind the scenes at United (with the younger age ranges perhaps) or leave and become manager elsewhere.

    Me and Dirtybit pretty much agree Rooney isn't a good deep lying playmaker and pretty much only hits diags to fullbacks.
