Manchester United chiefs will insist their new managerial appointment retains Ryan Giggs and his backroom staff.

The Manchester Evening News says insiders say he has been 'a breath of fresh air' at United's Carrington training complex and is relishing the opportunity.

Officials are keen to ensure that Giggs, who has been at the club since 1987, and members of the Class of '92 work alongside the new man and that the coaching staff 'retains a Manchester United feel'.
