London: Alex Ferguson says Ryan Giggs quit Man United at the right time and the former player is now ready for a manager's job.
"It is time Ryan stood on his own feet, got out there and accept the challenge," Ferguson said.
"He has a bit of steel about him. It is such a highly intense results industry, you need people who go into it to have a bit of steel about them, a bit of character and personality. I think he is ready to manage and he has a lot of quality. He doesn't want to spoil that quality by going to a club where it is sacking a manager every two minutes."
