Manchester United's new caretaker manager Ryan Giggs has revealed that the first person he called when he learned he would be taking over from David Moyes was Paul Scholes.

Giggs made the decision to bring former team mates Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt on to his management team in the aftermath of Moyes's exit and after a busy week he is concentrating on the challenge Norwich will provide tomorrow evening.

"It's the proudest moment of my life. I've been a United fan all my life and I'm happy, a little bit nervous and just like playing, can't wait for the game on Saturday," Ryan Giggs said in an interview with MUTV.

"I asked Butt to come up from the reserves and my first phonecall was to Scholes. I know how much it means to them to work for this club."

"My mindset is on Norwich, nothing else. After that, who knows what happens."

On the message he is going to give the players, Giggs said: "I trust you. Play with speed. Play with tempo. Get stuck in."

"I've taken a bit of stick from the players, they stuck a 'Gaffer' sign on my car park space!"

"Everyone involved this season hasn't been to the standards of Manchester United. And we're going to do something about that now.

"I've spoken to Sir Alex, and I wanted advice. Who better to ring?.

"We're Manchester United. We're at home against Norwich and we're expected to win.

"We have three home games, it's a great chance for the players. I want to give the fans something to shout about."
