New Manchester United manager, Ryan Giggs, has reflected on his first game in charge, following our 4-0 victory over Norwich.
“I was nervous, but as soon as I came out of the tunnel the reception I got, the staff got and the players got was brilliant,” he told MUTV. “I’ve got to thank the fans for that because it’s not been an easy week, but I felt ten feet tall.”
Ten teams had a better home record than us before kick-off, but you wouldn’t have known it after looking at our performance today.
“We looked like scoring goals and creating chances,” he told Sky Sports. “In the first half, we were a little bit slow, so I just reminded the players that the tempo needed to be quicker and they reacted well to that. They’re all good players and all of us have let ourselves down this year. We haven’t played to the level that we’re capable of this season, but we did that today. I said yesterday that it can’t just be for one game, it has to be for longer than that. Every time you play for Manchester United you have to stay at that level, and they have to keep to these standards against Sunderland.”
