Giggs wants United to attack
Ryan Giggs has vowed to bring passion, excitement and flair back to Manchester United during his brief stint as manager.
Giggs addressed the media on Friday for the first time since he was appointed interim player-manager following the sacking of David Moyes.
His message was music to the ears of United fans who had grown tired of watching their team play during Moyes' woeful 10-month spell in charge.
The slow, unimaginative way the team performed in Moyes' final game in charge last week disappointed Giggs, who is conscious and proud of United's historical reputation as one of the most fearsome attacking teams in the land.
Giggs knows Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson became club greats because their success was borne out of a commitment to attacking football.
And now Giggs wants to see a similar style of play from his team in his four matches at the helm.
"My philosophy is the Manchester United philosophy," Giggs said.
"I want players to play with passion, speed, tempo and be brave, with imagination, all the things that are expected of a Manchester United player.
"I want to see goals, tackles, players taking players on and getting the crowd up.
"I want the passion that should come with being a Manchester United player.
"I'll tell the players just to try to enjoy yourself, express yourself. I just want them to enjoy themselves and give the fans something to smile about in the remaining four games.
"It's been a frustrating season and I want to end it on a high. The stadium will be bouncing."
There was an air of infectious optimism in the academy building at Carrington on Friday as Giggs spoke to the media in the same room where Ferguson used to hold his press briefings.
If that positivity brushes off onto the players, then United should end the season strongly.
Giggs, kitted out in his training gear, could not conceal his delight at being asked to manage a club that has literally been his life.
"It's probably the proudest moment of my career," said Giggs, which is quite a statement considering he has won 35 trophies at United.
Giggs will be without forward Robin van Persie for his first match in charge against Norwich on Saturday.
Van Persie is still recovering from a knee injury while defender Rafael is unavailable because of a thigh problem.
Midfielder Giggs could name himself in the squad for the game against the Canaries, which comes four days after the dismissal of Moyes.
Norwich will again be without Joseph Yobo. The on-loan Nigeria defender has a calf injury, but should return to first-team training next week.
Winger Elliott Bennett is back in contention after completing his rehabilitation from his serious knee injury.
Scotland defender Steven Whittaker hopes Norwich can secure Premier League survival and earn Neil Adams the Carrow Road manager's job on a permanent basis.
Whittaker was a peripheral figure under Chris Hughton, who was sacked two weeks ago with five games to play and Norwich in the relegation mire.
Adams, who led the young Canaries to the FA Youth Cup last season, has given the players a boost, but is still searching for his first points when he takes his side to managerless Manchester United on Saturday after losses to Fulham and Liverpool.
"I hope he is the manager here next season," said Whittaker, who believes the players are benefiting from a positive playing style and a higher intensity in training.
"A lot of the boys had a boost, training's been a lot higher tempo than before and that's taken it into the games as well.
"I think there's been a big change the way we're playing, the positive approach that we've got and he's got is rubbing off on the boys and hopefully we can get the results.
"We've done well in the two games he's been in charge of so far, but the results haven't quite matched the performances, so that's something we're looking to improve on.
"We've got the performance, but without getting the points on the board that can push us up the league a little.
"Three points in this division's massive and it's still tight down there. We could go up a couple of positions with one win."
