Giggs is in charge on an interim basis after David Moyes' sacking.
"I know there's a lot of people speculating that they need somebody with big experience out there that has managed a club at the very top level but we are talking about a continuity, something like what Sir Alex Ferguson did," Yorke said.
"There is never going to be someone like Sir Alex Ferguson but what we're given here is a young manager who is looking to break in.
"He's not got the managerial skills but we thought that David Moyes had those skills of going into Manchester United with the experience that he had for 11 years being at Everton and the wonderful job that he'd done but he hasn't been able to turn things over at Manchester United.
"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."
