‘Class of 92’ reunited to stabilize Man United
Question of the Day
LONDON (AP) - Manchester United has brought the “Class of 92” back together.
Renowned graduates of United’s most successful youth team have been put in control of a team in turmoil following the abrupt dismissal of David Moyes. A notable absentee is David Beckham, who has never expressed a desire for team management.
“It will certainly be a different atmosphere in training and at Old Trafford and the fans will buy into it,” Eric Harrison, the youth team coach who developed the “Class of 92,” said Wednesday. “As soon as Ryan walks out the tunnel, the place will erupt.”
“I think for togetherness and getting the results and playing a certain way, a brand of football that is more eye-catching, the Man United way, I feel that Ryan Giggs is the right person,” former United teammate Dwight Yorke said.
With United searching for a more experienced successor for Moyes, Giggs has just four games to prove that the same football nous that enabled him to outwit opponents on the pitch for so many years also extends to the dugout.
“You’ve got to be natural as much as you can as a manager, find your own style, not try and be somebody else,” Giggs told The Guardian newspaper during a recent Football Association coaching course.
While cutting his teeth in the youth team, the Welsh winger was seen as setting the highest standards by the teammates now on his coaching staff.
“I used to call him a ‘football nut’ because he took everything on board,” Harrison told Talk Sport radio.
Giggs, Scholes, Butt and Neville made 2,453 appearances in total for United and were instrumental in the exceptional success under Alex Ferguson, who retired last year after 26 trophy-filled years in charge.
Scholes, whose retirement coincided with Ferguson’s, has returned to United to help out Giggs, while Butt had been coaching with United’s under-19 and under-21 teams, and Neville was already part of Moyes‘ staff.
