A documentary that charts a Premier League managerial stint that lasted all of four games might seem underwhelming. But this is Ryan Giggs we’re talking about. When English football’s most decorated player (13 league titles, four FA Cups, two Champions Leagues and more) took over as interim manager at Manchester United for the tail end of a lousy season, cameras were allowed in to follow him at work.
So rarely do film crews penetrate the gilded playpen of the Premier League, this would be interesting even if it weren’t following a watershed in the career of a sporting legend. But with Giggs at the centre, it promises to be unmissable.
Focusing on Ryan Giggs' four matches in charge of Manchester United at the end of last season following the departure of David Moyes. The programme features an insight into how he prepared the squad for each fixture and an overview of the Welshman's playing career at United, which he brought to an end recently to become assistant manager to Louis van Gaal.
