Paul Scholes has backed Ryan Giggs to be the next Manchester United manager when Sir Alex Ferguson slips into retirement.

Paul Scholes: "People have talked about Mourinho.

"It can change quickly - it's about who is successful at the time. Whether they are British or foreign, you just want the best man for the job.

"I could see Ryan Giggs becoming manager."

Chief executive David Gill: "I think Alex will be the key to who replaces him.

"He knows people. He will have a big role in advising and being a sounding board."

Meanwhile . Newcastle's next fixture is against Wolves, and the Midlands club will start their bid to find Mick McCarthy's replacement, with bookmakers favourite reportedly Alan Curbishley set to be interviewed.

Curbishley has been already sounded out by the Wolves hierarchy, but Neil Warnock and Steve Bruce are also in contention, and the interview process is expected to continue until the early part of next week.

Morgan is unconcerned that former Charlton and West Ham boss Curbishley has been out of management for the past three and a half years.

Wolves are also planning to speak to Warnock who is being linked with the vacant post at Huddersfield after Lee Clark's departure after agreeing his settlement with QPR.

Former Birmingham and Sunderland manager Bruce is also eyed as a potential candidate after McCarthy was sacked after five and a half years at Molineux.
