MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Ryan Giggs is starting his stint as interim Manchester United manager by urging his players to entertain the fans who have endured a miserable season.

The 40-year-old midfielder was put in charge on Tuesday when David Moyes' reign ended after 10 months with the defending champions in seventh place in the Premier League.

Speaking for the first time as manager, Giggs says he told the squad to ''give the fans something to shout about. Entertain them, score goals, make tackles, play with speed, play with tempo.''
