Class of ’92 reunite to help Manchester United in their time of need

Manchester United are continuing to rebuild their coaching staff after David Moyes‘ departure and their coaching staff now has an extremely familiar look.

40-year-old Ryan Giggs has taken over on an interim basis and now United have announced that his fellow teammates who came through the academy with him, who are also club legends,  are by his side.

Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Phil Neville (who assisted David Moyes) will assist him Giggs for the final four games of the season, in a move that’s proved extremely popular with United fans.

All the club need to do is get Gary Neville and David Beckham involved and they have the entire Class of ’92 reunited.

Speaking about the quartet being handed charge for the final four games of the season, former United midfielder Butt is optimistic about the future.

“It will be massive for us, a proud moment for us all,” Butt said. “To be there together is a bit of a surreal thing. We walked in here together when we were 12 and to be here now – I’m not 40 yet but Giggsy is, and myself and Scholes are nearly there too. So for us and Phil to be there together is a very proud moment. We’re here to try to help the club and get the results that we want from now until the end of the season. What happens after that, who knows?”

Below is the first photo of United’s coaching ‘dream team’ who will take charge of their first game together against Norwich City live on NBC at 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. Many see these former United legends as merely stepping in to plug a gap in their beloved clubs time of need.

Yet if they do well, who says the Class of ’92 can’t manage United for the foreseeable future?

    I think this was the best thing for Manchester United. They kept it all in house, and I would imagine, if these guys were given the time, that the results would be vastly similar to Pep Guardiola in his stint with Barcelona. I don’t think four games is enough time to establish themselves, and I’m sure they will not be given the keys the the Ferrari for the long term however.
