Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs believes new manager David Moyes is similar to Sir Alex Ferguson, though he says Moyes has yet to fully stamp his own mark on the squad.
The former Everton boss replaced the veteran Scot in the summer, and, after enduring a rough start to the season, has overseen 12 successive games unbeaten – including a win over league leader Arsenal. And Giggs, who turned 40 last week, has revealed that there is little difference between the two managers, while he believes Moyes has been wary of changing too much, too soon
When asked if there are big differences between the two coaches' styles, Giggs told Absolute Radio: “No, not really. I think they're both quite similar. Of course the manager has come in to the champions, he doesn't want to change too much, but he's going to want to put his own stamp on it. I think slowly over time it will probably change a little, but at the moment not a lot has changed.”
Giggs was full of praise for Ferguson, saying it was the Scot who played the biggest role in his illustrious career.
“The manager obviously really looked after me, especially in my career, and wanted me to do well and wanted me to go on and fulfill my potential,” added the Welshman. “So the manager is probably the biggest influence on my career, so I'm obviously grateful for the way he handled me.”
