Ryan Giggs has already been named as Louis van Gaal’s assistant manager for next season, and we all thought that he would be bringing in his own coaches – leaving no room for the Class of 92. That may not be the case though, with the Guardian claiming that Scholes, Butt and Neville could yet be kept on the staff by Van Gaal.
No final decision will be made on the matter until after the World Cup, but its nice to see that the new manager is at least considering the former legends as full-time staff members. The Class of 92 epitomise what Manchester United are about, and letting them continue their legacy can only be a good thing in my opinion.
This comes as a bit of a surprise, particularly regarding Paul Scholes, as he admitted he didn’t think Van Gaal would keep him on:
“I’ve not spoken to Edward Woodward [executive vice-chairman]. I came back for Ryan Giggs for the last few games of last season to try to help out but I’m not waiting for a phone call and don’t expect to be at United next season.”
Louis van Gaal’s first game in charge will be on Manchester United’s pre-season tour of America; Where they’ll take on the likes of LA Galaxy, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. We should have a decision on the Class of 92’s future beforehand.
Would it be a good idea to keep them on the coaching staff? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
