Van Persie: Giggs is Sir Alex-esque

Robin van Persie has sung the praises of interim boss Ryan Giggs, claiming that the talks he gives the players are on a level with Sir Alex Ferguson’s.

“I witnessed two team meetings as I came in a bit late,” Van Persie told MUTV. “The one from the last game against Sunderland, and today’s game, were incredible. They were Sir Alex-esque. He’s been brilliant and I think he came on without even warming up tonight! Am I correct? He came on without a warm-up, put in some fantastic passes and almost scored. He’s a legend and I think he shows that every day.”

    Praise the football god that Giggs did not suffer any cramps after not having a warm up.

    High praise indeed….Giggs the footballer, Giggs the athlete, a Legend indeed. I hope LvG who’s expected to be the next Man United manager retains him as his No2 so that he’ll be able to come in and do a good job for us when the time is right.

    RVP is just over the moon in hyperbole that Moyes is gone. As are most of the rest of us.

  4. Jorge Curioso II says:

    RVP looks like he may know something about a certain Dutch manager taking over…

  5. Tommy says:

    Id give him another year, Hes still our best midfielder, which is both extraditiory and sad that a 40 year is our best midfielder but hes good enough to be a squad player who has top top performances from time to time

  6. The One says:

    I’d like to see Giggs continue 1 more season too. He has still got more vision in his passing than most of our midfielders. I don’t think he can play on a regular basis though but keeping him as a squad player would be good. He has invaluable experience and know-how and can definitely be a good influence and inspiration to the younger lads.

    Jorge Curioso II, nah, I don’t think the delay in announcing the new manager means anything at all. Thus far, it appears that LvG is the man the club wants. We’ve not been linked with anyone else as strongly so fingers crossed, he’d be installed at the end of the season when Giggs’ tenure as interim manager comes to an end….makes sense.
