Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has hinted that he could become the future manager of the club. Giggs was the interim manager in the final four matches of last season, but he has just given way to Louis van Gaal. However, he will be remaining part of the coaching staff and will be looking to provide the continuity after a disastrous season. Van Gaal is expected to be a short-term appointment since at 62 years of age, he is unlikely to carry on managing for a decade. Giggs is seen as the future of Manchester United and the Welshman has accepted that a future managerial role at the club cannot be ruled out.
Giggs has stated that he enjoyed a spell in charge of the team for the last four matches and is looking forward to getting such a role in the future as well. He has also expressed his ambition to learn from van Gaal. United will be hoping to challenge for the title almost on an immediate basis since it is important for a club of this stature. The team finished seventh in the table last season. As a result, they will be without even Europa League football for the upcoming campaign.
“It’s been a whirlwind and I wouldn’t change it for the world. It was just a brilliant experience, one that I thoroughly enjoyed and will be all the better for next time it happens. I met Louis and the meeting went really well. I liked him instantly and I’m looking forward to working with him and learning from him. We got off the plane at Manchester Airport and I was saying goodbye to the players, thanking them. Potentially saying goodbye to a lot of players for the last time, a bit of the staff, and I’m not an emotional person. Well, I didn’t think I was,” said Giggs.
