Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has backed interim manager Ryan Giggs to become the next permanent manager of the club despite the club viewing the player-coach as lacking the necessary experience to become David Moyes' long-term successor.

The Welshman, who was given the role on an interim basis on Tuesday after the sacking of Moyes, has accepted the job for only the last four matches of the season, although he is open to being permanent.

According to The Guardian, even though his backing of fellow Scot Moyes proved to be a dire miscalculation as the former Everton boss lasted just ten months on a six-year contract, Ferguson, however, believes that Giggs can succeed in the post as he has got 20-odd years of experience at United and has experienced all the highs and lows at the club.

Ferguson further said that Giggs knows exactly what is needed to be a United player and expressed pleasure that Giggs brought his former teammates Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt to the club, adding that the trio are hard workers, 'straight as a die', understand the club and thus are the right combinations.

Ferguson, before retiring last May, had talked of establishing a structure at United similar to Bayern Munich, where key roles are occupied by former successful players, saying that it is possible to do succession planning at United with Giggs, Butt, Scholes and Phil Neville back in the club.
