Man United officially confirmed the Portuguese boss as Louis van Gaal‘s successor on Friday morning and has signed a three-year deal at Old Trafford.
The club have still not issued an update on Giggs’ role or if he will even work under Mourinho next season.
He has been offered to stay at Man United and reports suggests Mourinho would make a role suited for Giggs to help youngsters progress into the first-team.
Giggs accumulated over 34 career trophies as a player, but his experience as a coach is next to none. During his final season as a player he had four games in charge as a caretaker manager following the sacking of David Moyes and was backed on many occasions by van Gaal to succeed him once he left the club.
He clearly has desires to become a manager at the club but he needs experience under his belt before attempting to take on a massive job like Man United, he needs a CV to match his desires at Old Trafford and his time may come down the line yet with Mourinho taking over he’ll have a long wait ahead of him.
The 42-year old will know the club inside out after making more appearances and winning more honours than any other player in the club’s history. If he decides to leave it would end almost 30-years with Man United and it would be sad to see him go.
