According to The Sun, the club’s hierarchy have made wholesale changes to the running of both day-to-day affairs and fixtures at the club, giving much more control over to the Red Devils legend and, in doing so, taking some of van Gaal’s powers away from him.
The tabloid note that the move is an attempt by the club to revive the north-west giants’ slump following their miserable run at the end of 2015.
The first fruits of Giggs’s nascent regime were seen in the club’s first match of 2016 when they beat Swansea City, further encouraging the club’s hierarchy to hand more power over to the Welshman.
The news may represent the beginning of the end for LVG who has endured criticism about his transfer policy and his playing style, and has been persistently linked with the exit door since Jose Mourinho was sacked from his post at Chelsea.
The decision to hand more control over to Giggs could also indicate that the club’s board feel the 42-year-old is ready to take the top job already.
