Manchester United Icon Ryan Giggs Could Finally Exit Old Trafford
Manchester United veteran and current interim manager Ryan Giggs is worried he could be forced to leave his beloved club come the summer, should the new incoming boss no longer want him there.
Giggs, 40, has played a bit role in United’s abysmal campaign this season as a player but has been given more influence in the backroom as a coach under deposed-manager David Moyes.
Since Moyes’ sacking a few weeks ago due to the Red Devils failing to seal the minimum finish of a Champions League qualification, Giggs has been installed as a temporary manager.
Rumblings, however, abound that the new manager to be placed come the summer, with Holland national team manager Louis van Gaal the favourite to fill that role, won’t have a spot for Giggs in either the squad or the staff room – which could force Giggs to seek his future elsewhere.
And while Giggs is adamant Manchester United will be the first and last club he will play for, he won’t say no to a managerial offer away from the Red Devils.
“You can never say yes or no,” Giggs told the BBC when he was asked if he could come in as manager for another club. “I’m still a young man in relative terms in management.”
Giggs also added: “It’s my decision [to leave] and whoever comes in, if they want me.”
Giggs is the most decorated player in English history, with no less than 22 accolades in his resume, including 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League trophies.
