United have named 40 year old Giggs as player-coach and 36 year old Neville as their new first-team coach at Old Trafford.

"I'm delighted that Ryan has accepted the chance to become player-coach," said new United manager David Moyes.

"It's no secret I've been taking my qualification. I see this as the first step in my future career," replied Giggs. "It's a great privilege to be appointed as player-coach. I hope I will be able to bring my experience to bear, having been both a player and part of the Manchester United family for so long.

"I'm really looking forward to working alongside David and the team."

After his 22nd season with the club, midfielder Giggs signed a new one-year deal in March which will run until June 2014. To date, Giggs has earned 13 league titles, four FA Cups, four League Cups and two Champions League titles.

The former Wales skipper captained Great Britain at last summer's London Olympics.

"His success and ability to adapt his game over a number of years gives him an unrivalled perspective on the modern game," said Moyes. "His career is an example to any aspiring young player and I'm sure that both he and the players will benefit from his new role."

Phil Neville came through the ranks at United, played under Moyes at Goodison Park and left Eerton at the same time as the Scot. Neville earned 59 England caps during his playing career - winning six Premier League titles, three FA Cups and one Champions League crown at Old Trafford.

"When David Moyes called to give me this opportunity, I couldn't resist. I gave my all when I played for Everton but it is no secret that this club is in my heart," said Neville.

The updated coaching crew at United is made up mostly of staff who worked under Moyes at Everton.
