first_img “I come out the airport at the lights and Nicky Butt (a former team-mate and one of Giggs’ coaching assistants) just pulled up next to me and I’m thinking ‘I can’t let Butty know that I’ve just been crying’ so I just give him a little wave and looked the other way and waited for the lights to go green. “It sounds stupid now but it’s just not me, it’s just not me at all. “Driving home from the airport was a release, it was a sort of strange feeling knowing that I didn’t have to come in tomorrow and that it’s a new beginning and it’s exciting. “For the first time in my career it’s going into what is going to be a different season, a different summer.” Giggs still has regrets about his final season as a player at Old Trafford but has none about stepping into the manager’s position, albeit briefly. “It’s been a difficult year playing-wise, (I’ve) not enjoyed the results and the playing so have I contributed? Not as much as I have done previously,” added the former Wales winger. “If I’d have retired last year I’d have gone out on a high: it was the 20th title and everything would have been rosy, but life isn’t like that. “I took the manager’s job without hesitation because who turns the chance of managing Manchester United down? “For 20 years Sir Alex used to say ‘wait until all you lot are managers and you’ll find out how hard it is to pick a team, to leave good players out’, and I was just sat there going ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever’. “And it’s like having your first baby, you can prep as much as you can but until it comes down to actually living it day in, day out, you can never prepare for it.” Giggs’ wife Stacey noticed a significant change once he took the reins from Moyes. “I did worry a little bit, because I just thought, ‘Oh God, here we go, all the pressure, stress’, but to be fair it hasn’t been that bad,” she said. “The only change is he’s not sat on his a*** watching telly all afternoon.” The final word went to Ferguson, who paid tribute to Giggs’ longevity and contribution to the club. “If you asked me the three or four best players in United’s history, Giggs is definitely one, absolutely no doubt. You can argue with the rest,” said the Scot. Giggs will be the Dutchman’s assistant and intends to get as much out of the role as he can as he takes his first steps into coaching after calling time on his playing career. “I met Louis and the meeting went really well, I liked him instantly and I’m looking forward to working with him and learning from him,” said Giggs in the ITV documentary Life of Ryan: Caretaker Manager to be screened on Thursday night. “It’s been a whirlwind and I wouldn’t change it for the world. “It was just a brilliant experience and one that I thoroughly enjoyed will be all the better for next time it happens.” In the programme Giggs said he found his role as manager stressful and admits he shed tears after their final match of the season at Southampton. “We got off the plane at Manchester Airport and I was saying goodbye to the players, thanking them and potentially saying goodbye to a lot of players for the last time,” he added. “I’m not an emotional man – well, I didn’t think I was – but my car was parked right outside and I thought ‘I need to get in my car here’. I could feel myself getting emotional. “So I get in my car and I just started crying, started getting really emotional and I think it was just a mixture of what I’ve just said, saying goodbye to people for maybe the last time and the pressure that I put myself under. The 40-year-old Welshman took charge of the club’s final four matches of the season after David Moyes was sacked 10 months after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson. There were calls for Giggs, who made a record 963 appearances for United, to be given the job full-time but the Old Trafford hierarchy opted for the experience of current Holland boss Louis van Gaal. Ryan Giggs believes his experience as Manchester United’s short-term interim manager was good preparation “for the next time it happens”. Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgMonish Tyagi and Logan Lachman, who are running for Undergraduate Student Government’s president and vice-president, are one of the more experienced tickets on this year’s ballot.Experienced · Monish Tyagi (left) and Logan Lachman want to extend the hours of the restaurants in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center. – Jennifer Schultz | Daily Trojan Both candidates have been involved with USG since their first semester as freshmen. Tyagi, a junior majoring in cinema-television production, is currently the director of USG’s Campus Affairs committee. Lachman, a sophomore majoring in communication, is a current USG Greek senator.Tyagi and Lachman believe their experience in groups ranging from Greek Life to Troy Camp to club sports allows them to connect more with fellow students and become more effective leaders in USG.“USG is by far my biggest passion here at USC,” Tyagi said. “From day one, I saw the power that USG had to work with students. This place has really become my home and what I really love about USG is that it’s such a tangible way to give back.”The two candidates constructed a campaign strategy and platform that reflect their commitment to fellow students as well as their desire to encourage a more unified and involved student body.Part of their plan to foster an increasingly active student life on campus includes working with Student Affairs to extend the hours of the Ronald Tutor Campus Center and to play music in the courtyard.“The Ronald Tutor Campus Center has been such an amazing addition to campus,” Tyagi said. “We want to keep that going and build upon it to really make it a driving force behind student life on campus.”In addition to working with Student Affairs, Tyagi and Lachman hope to unify the student body by coordinating with other campus spirit organizations to help create a more centralized student section for basketball games and events prior to the games.“This school is amazing and has so much to offer,” Lachman said. “Some people might not know how to get involved but everyone is able to, and I really hope that’s the one thing we can do if we are elected, to make everyone in this school feel unified and a part of something.”Tyagi and Lachman plan to get students more involved by providing input on various programs, such as concerts, guest speakers and Visions & Voices events. They hope to increase the amount of communication among various students and organizations as well.“For this to happen we want to hold more types of events that will connect students, student organizations and USG,” Lachman said. “We want to connect administrators to students, but also students to students because they don’t necessarily get to communicate the way they should, so we want to create a central hub to put everyone together the way they should be.”Their platform also includes goals like increasing opportunities for students to find on-campus jobs, creating an alumni mentorship program, adding a fall break, improving the tram system and focusing more effort on sustainability initiatives for both on- and off-campus housing.Since beginning their campaign Monday, Tyagi and Lachman have made a point of personally interacting with students campus.They have also tried to lighten the mood of election season with their hot pink campaign shirts, posters featuring caricatures of themselves and campaign videos that play off of the popular Dos Equis advertisements starring “The Most Interesting Man in the World.”“We just want to get students excited because this election could get pretty intense and pretty serious, as it should be, but at the same time there is a lot of fun surrounding it,” Tyagi said. “It’s been really great to see USC students so excited about the election.”For more coverage on the 2011 USG elections, click here.last_img read more
