Of course, all the United players are in the same boat, but for Giggs, who's been at the club longer than anybody else, it must seem particularly strange. Nevertheless, the 39-year-old says he's been very impressed by the new manager's methods.
"He’s really hands-on," he said. "He’s a manager that coaches and likes to be involved in everything.
"But there is also a good symmetry with Steve Round, Jimmy Lumsden, Phil Neville and myself – everyone works well together. He likes to take control of most of the training but he knows he’s got the other guys to help him.
"He’s a real details man. He likes to know everything about every player and I think that’s what you need to be a Manchester United manager. It’s all in the details. And that’s what he is all about."
