Robbie Savage feels former teammate Ryan Giggs is the right man to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

Savage wrote in the Mirror: "In my early days with the Welsh squad, Mark Hughes was a softly-spoken character who mostly kept his opinions about football to himself. Yet when he took over the national team, and later Blackburn Rovers, I know from personal experience what a forceful presence and a thoughtful manager he became.

"Giggsy is a similar personality to how Sparky used to be. But having heard him speak in the dressing room as Wales captain, I know he has what it takes to inspire a dressing room.

"And his status as probably the greatest Premier League player in history and an Old Trafford legend would command respect and attract the best in the world to play under him."
