Over twenty years ago Sir Alex Ferguson led a youth inspired Manchester United to Premier League glory, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Nicky Butt, David Beckham and Phil Neville, all products of the Manchester United academy were at the heart of the most decorated side in domestic history.
Now in 2014 only one of the famed class of ’92 are still playing – the evergreen Ryan Giggs. Gary Neville entered the world of becoming a football pundit, David Beckham has recently announced that he’ll own his own MLS franchise and the rest entered coaching. Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes have both been involved with the United academy of late, with Scholsie recently joining Neville on Sky Sports News as a pundit for the Manchester derby.
However today it has been announced that Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville will become the owners of non-league side Salford City FC, subject to approval from the FA. It is believed Phil Neville and Nicky Butt are also involved in the project, who are hoping to secure some of Manchester’s brightest young players to build their own class of ’92.
According to reports, Paul Scholes is set to be installed as manager as Salford City after seemingly rejecting the job opportunity offered to him by David Moyes at Manchester United.
Ryan Giggs is set to retire at the end of the season, and him taking charge of Salford City probably rules the 40-year old out of managing the United first team should Moyes get the sack.
