Dwight Yorke’s Opinion On The Next Manchester United Manager.

Manchester United seem to be in a confused state regarding decisions on who should take over reigns from out-of-favor manager and tactician Louis Van Gaal.

Bryan Robson

A Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has suggested in an interview that Giggs should be appointed the next manager.

Bryan believes that Ryan Giggs has a great chance to repeat the success achieved by two-time Champions League winning coach Pep Guardiola. It should be remembered that Pep came through the ranks at Barcelona before breaking historical records as manager.

Dwight Yorke 

Another legendary Man U player Dwight Yorke has expressed his support for Giggs to secure the hot-seat. During his interview with 888 Sport, Yorke admitted:

“You have to accept that Mourinho has been a great manager, but if there is a change of manager at Manchester United and Van Gall goes then it will be Ryan Giggs”.

There are strong speculations that former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho could be the next manager at Manchester United but Yorke believes things may not go as everyone is expecting.

“For Manchester United now there is no candidate out there. There is no question in my mind who should get the job.

“If they don’t either this season or next season then Giggs won’t be around anymore because he has served his time. If he can’t make the step up after three years, after seeing all he has seen, then when? After ten?

“Look at how football is changing. In Spain’s top three all the managers are young ex players. You have Pep who is coming over, a young manager at 45. There’s Pochettino at Spurs and Conte in Italy and Gary Neville is being given a chance.

“You’ll find now in the next five years there will be more ex-players managing football teams because there is a new generation of managers coming through. The old ones are fizzling out.”

Dwight Yorke remains a legend at Aston Villa and Manchester United where his career of 20 years was filled with wonderful achievements. 

He is also richly revered and admired back in his homeland of Tobago where the national football stadium bears his name. His proudest achievement.
