8 Jobs the Class of '92 Can Do at Old Trafford
Ryan Giggs' future is unclear.
The Manchester United interim manager is set to be replaced by Dutch national team coach Louis van Gaal and has admitted he would be willing to leave the club to continue his management career elsewhere.
The Guardian, however, has suggested he may stay at Old Trafford as Van Gaal's No. 2, on account of a question over the Dutchman's current second-in-command Patrick Kluivert.
If Giggs and his coaching staff of Nicky Butt, Phil Neville and Paul Scholes are cleared out by Van Gaal, here are some other jobs the Class of '92 could take on at the Theatre of Dreams.
Paul Scholes the Car Cleaner
Paul Scholes would be perfect for the role, provided he doesn't leave any cars idling while he attends to other business. That hasn't worked out well for him in the past.
Ryan Giggs the Away Day Coordinator
There are a great deal of logistics involved in organising a Premier League team's away schedule.
There are coaches to be booked, hotels to be organised, catering to be taken care of and someone required to do a head count to prevent players from being left behind at Watford Gap.
It's an important administrative job, and Giggsy has plenty of experience of successfully playing away from home.
Phil Neville the Interior Designer
Phil Neville may have dedicated himself to a career in coaching, but the former full-back has exceptional taste in interior design. Just look at the beautiful and not-at-all garish aesthetics of his old Versace-themed mansion.
If David Moyes' incredibly plain office was anything to go by, Carrington could definitely do with some more gold leaf and Las Vegas casino-style carpets.
Nicky Butt the Global Sales Manager
Nicky Butt played a season in South China, so he may have some more contacts in the lucrative Asian market. An official nosehair trimmer partner and an official smoke alarm partner await...
Paul Scholes the Media Training Executive
In two decades at Old Trafford, Paul Scholes managed to keep his name out of the papers for any salacious reasons and hardly said a single word to the press that he didn't have to.
There is an awful lot that the game's young stars could learn from him about keeping their indiscretions on the down low.
Ryan Giggs the Grooming Coordinator
Ryan Giggs is a hirsute man. When he removed his shirt for his famous 1999 FA Cup semi-final goal, it looked like a wolverine had escaped on to the pitch.
However, in more recent years, the Welshman appears to have brought his chest fuzz under control. If the coaching gig goes out the window, United could certainly use his "mantopiary" skills.
Phil Neville the Discipline Guru
During his 10 seasons at Manchester United, Phil Neville was never given a red card. However, he collected yellow cards like they were going out of fashion—most notably the 2002-03 season when he earned seven cautions in 19 league games.
P-Nev could give some valuable tuition on the art of playing dirty without playing too dirty.
The Class of '92 In-House Boy Band
If all else fails, Giggs, Neville, Scholes and Butt could club together and become the Old Trafford in-house boy band.
If Yeovil can have a girl band, why can't United have a male ensemble?
Name suggestions could include Boyz II Old Men, '92 Directions, the UnWanted or the Old Spice Boys.
