Wales consider Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs for senior job: report

Manchester United legend and Welshman Ryan Giggs has reportedly been interviewed for his country’s job, possibly starting his career in management on the international stage.

The former winger has little experience in management but the British nation have had a history of hiring their former players.

Giggs experienced a little time in the Old Trafford dugout acting as interim manager after David Moyes was sacked for underperforming with United.

Louis Van Gaal was chosen next to lead the Red Devils to glory and made the one club man his assistant manager, mentoring him with the long term vision of being replaced by him.

It wasn’t long until Jose Mourinho was brought in and despite reportedly offering the former academy product a spot amongst the staff, he turned it down to move on from the club.

According to Reuters, Ryan has been interview for the vacant Wales job, one that he previously stated would be a great job to take on.

Since moving on from Manchester United, Ryan Giggs has been unemployed with some believing he’s waiting for the main job to be vacant once more to lead his former club to its former heights.

Mainly working as a pundit, the Welshman stated on live TV previously that he’s simply waiting for the right opportunity to come up and isn’t keen on working with just anyone.

Having been interested in the Swansea job, it eventually fizzled out into nothing but it seems as though Wales are seriously considering Giggs as their man.
