Rhodri Giggs tweets about Jose Mourinho after Manchester United defeat


Ryan Giggs' brother, Rhodri, joked about Louis van Gaal being sacked during the first-half of Manchester United's clash with Stoke.

The Dutchman, who is assisted by United legend Ryan, is under huge pressure at Old Trafford with the club currently on a woeful run of form.

After goals from Bojan Krkic and Marko Arnautovic gave the Potters' a 2-0 lead within the opening half an hour, Rhodri trolled Van Gaal on Twitter.

But instead of calling for his brother to be promoted to manager, he seems to want Jose Mourinho in the United dugout.

He wrote: "Mourinho to his driver 'start the car'," suggesting that the Portuguese would take charge of United if they ended up losing against Stoke.

Mourinho is out of a job after his sacking by Chelsea earlier this month and would be the obvious candidate to replace Van Gaal if the Dutchman were to be sacked.

Rhodri Giggs was thrusted into the public spotlight in 2011 when details of an affair between his then wife Natalie and brother Ryan were made public.

In an interview earlier this year, Rhodri revealed he and Ryan haven't spoken since he found out.

“I haven’t spoken to him since it happened. I don’t care about an apology I just want to get on with my life," said Rhodri.

"That cloud will be over his head and her head. My conscious is very clear.”
