Jose Mourinho invites Ryan Giggs back to Manchester United for tips ahead of Wales job

Ryan Giggs has been invited back to Manchester United by Jose Mourinho after taking the Wales’ national team manager’s job recently.

The Sun report that the Man United manager has told Giggs that he is welcome back to the club’s Carrington Aon Training Complex.

Mourinho is reportedly willing to help Giggs ahead of his first match in charge of Wales and has offered to speak to him about management and tactics.

Giggs had previously been a contender, against Mourinho, to take the helm at Old Trafford, but the board elected to go with Mourinho, who removed Giggs from his post of assistant manager which he held under Louis van Gaal for two seasons.

He’s waited some time before accepting a job in management, having applied to roles in club football, but was announced as the successor to Chris Coleman, who guided Wales to the 2016 European Championships semi-final, recently.

Giggs will be allowed to observe training sessions at United by Mourinho.

According to The Sun, an insider at United said that “there is still a lot of respect for what Giggsy achieved at United.”

“Jose is pleased Ryan has finally taken the plunge and everyone at the club only wants him to be successful. They are happy to assist him with anything.”

There is seemingly no bad blood between Mourinho and club legend Giggs, which can only be a good thing, and it’s only right that United offer their assistance to Giggs ahead of his first permanent role in football management.
