I heard some news on Sunday that saddened me greatly regarding, arguably, the greatest of all servants at Manchester United, Ryan Giggs.
He will NOT be offered another contract by the club and although some of you may be thinking well he is 40 now so its no great loss he will also NOT be kept on in any capacity at the club.
From what I have been told by someone inside the club David Moyes feels threatened and intimidated by Giggs overwhelming experience and has been looking for a way to force him out of the club from pretty much the first few weeks in charge.
Full credit to Ryan who has resisted going public on these matters and will attempt to just see out the remaining few weeks of what has been an awful season for his beloved United. I’ve been told that he is desperate to stay at the club but cannot see any way of that happening. Worst of all he also feels he will not get the chance to say goodbye to the United fans and thank them for all the wonderful times they have shared together. He has been desperate to play these last few weeks but has inexplicably been left out of the side despite his man of the match performance against Olympiakos.
Indeed he was only selected to play against Olympiakos because a fellow player tipped off the media that he was being deliberately frozen out. So David Moyes ‘tactical masterstroke’ was actually forced on him so as not to upset the fans.
With this in mind I urge all at Old Trafford, and those wonderful fans that follow the team away from home, to sing your hearts out for Giggs as you will not be seeing him again in his famous number 11 shirt after this season.
It’s the very least he deserves.
