Former Red Devils defender Gary Pallister, an ex-team-mate of Giggsâ, says Moyes could be trying to set up something similar to the famous Anfield boot-room.
Back in the 1970s and â80s the âLiverpool Wayâ was to promote from within and install managers who had the club very much at heart.
And United will be spoilt for choice with Paul Scholes, now a full-time coach with the reserves after hanging up his boots in May, and Nicky Butt also working at the club.
Pallister, 48, said: âTaking Ryan and Phil on to the coaching staff gives continuity.
âDavid Moyes is his own man, has brought in his own staff and will want to do things his own way. But I can see it being a little bit like the old Liverpool way.
âWhen a club is so successful you want to keep things ticking along without changing things too much.â
He added: âPhil has always made it clear that coaching was something he was interested in, so it has always seemed a natural progression.
âWith Ryan, maybe it is a bit more of a surprise. I didnât know he was thinking of moving in that direction until it came out he was doing his coaching badges.
âHe has a wealth of experience to pass on and he will be able to guide players about how to deal with the trappings of being a superstar while making a huge impact in the game at a very young age.
âHe has seen it all in 20-odd years at the club â he has worked with some big characters and under the best manager ever seen in British football.â
