Manchester United have offered Ryan Giggs a new role at the club designed to bridge the gap between the U21s and the first team, according to MailOnline.
Giggs, who had been serving as Louis van Gaal’s assistant prior to the Dutchman’s sacking on Monday, faces an uncertain future at Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho is widely expected to be named as Man United’s new manager this week but the Portuguese is not said to be keen on having Giggs as his assistant. Rui Faria is set to fill the role instead.
United wants to keep Giggs, a club legend, at Old Trafford and they are willing to create a new role just for the Welshman.
Giggs would act as a go-between as United’s youngsters look to force their way into Mourinho’s first team squad.
He would offer guidance to players such as Andreas Pereira, who have impressed in the U21s but not quite made the step up to first team affairs.
It is a big decision for Giggs. Should he stay, and risk being overshadowed by Mourinho, or should he leave, and risk taking a job elsewhere? The hope for the majority of fans, at least, is that Giggs extends his 29-year association with the club.
