Lindegaard compares Giggs to Guardiola

Man United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has boldly predicted that interim coach Ryan Giggs could reach the same heights as Pep Guardiola.

His last speech before the team went on the pitch before the match against Norwich was spine-tingling in a way that I have only experienced from Sir Alex.

Some might question whether it can work to go from being a team-mate to the manager from one day to the next.

Normally, I have my reservations, but in Giggs' case, it is another matter.

It probably sounds rather naive and impetuous, and I understand people scepticism about any conclusion drawn from the results of four workouts, a game and a day off, but to me we are dealing with a new Guardiola.
