Hero of the Week: Manchester United Living Legend Ryan Giggs

Will TideySenior Manager, GlobalAugust 30, 2016

It was all about Ryan Giggs on Tuesday at Old Trafford, as the Manchester United interim manager sent out a young side and then brought himself off the bench in the second half.

Were we watching the last home performance of a United great? There was a sense we might have been.

In any case, the fan reaction to Giggs was surely with that in mind.

Giggs' speech afterwards was also the stuff of heroes—a bold call-to-arms for United fans and a statement of intent for what's to come.

Will Giggs be involved next season? Off the pitch, it seems likely. On it, we can't be sure.
