LONDON - Ryan Giggs's first match as interim Manchester United manager ended in a 4-0 thrashing of Premier League strugglers Norwich City at Old Trafford yesterday.
Wayne Rooney and substitute Juan Mata scored two goals apiece as the soon-to-be-dethroned English champions left the Canaries just a point above the relegation zone with two games remaining.
Giggs, who decided against naming himself in the starting side or on the bench, saw Rooney give United the lead with a 41st-minute penalty after Danny Welbeck went down in the box.
England striker Rooney made it 2-0 seven minutes after the break with a curling shot from outside the box as Norwich's defence backed off.
Mata put the result beyond doubt in the 63rd minute when he turned in Phil Jones's cross before adding a second goal 10 minutes later as Norwich retreated again.
