Sir Alex Ferguson has told Ryan Giggs he is available at any time to offer advice about handling the pressure of being Manchester United manager according to a BBC report.
Giggs will be in charge for the final four games of the season after taking over from David Moyes, who was sacked on Tuesday.
“He has given me advice and told me he is always at the end of the phone,” Giggs said.
“He was the first person I picked up the phone to. Why wouldn’t I?”
Ferguson managed the club from 1987 until 2013, before retiring and Giggs added: “It’s good to know I can turn to the manager if I ever need him.”
Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League encounter with Norwich City, Giggs, 40, highlighted why Ferguson is the perfect man to talk to.
“He’s been everything you can be as a manager – a young manager, an experienced manager, a successful manager,” Giggs said.
The Welshman remains adamant United’s players are far better than the results they have produced this season.
Unless there is a dramatic change in fortune, the Red Devils are set to miss out on European qualification for the first time since 1981.
