“The English press really thought he was the next Zidane” – Twitter reacts to Ryan Giggs leaving

On the afternoon of June 1st, The Mirror reported that Ryan Giggs had returned from holiday in Dubai and was ready to quit Manchester United to prove himself as a manager.

Reactions on Twitter varied from happy to fans being in two minds about the news, but a majority being pleased with the decision from the United legend and ex-assistant manager of Man Utd.

When Louis van Gaal was appointed, it was initially thought that Ryan Giggs would become his successor after 3 years of the Dutch manager, but things haven’t gone to plan and Van Gaal’s contract was terminated earlier than expected, with José Mourinho now the manager of Manchester United.

Below are reactions to the news via Twitter:

A hint of humour from some users but almost definitely a reaction of happiness and relief seeing as Giggs seemed to think he had ‘every right to become manager’, but why? What relevance does his managing CV provide?
