Manchester United Legend Ryan Giggs Ready To Manage The Right Club

Former legendary Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs is ready to take his first proper inroad into management once he [Giggs] finds the right club and chairman to work for.

The former Wales International has been out of work since leaving Old Trafford following the appointment of club manager Jose Mourinho, having spent two years working as ex-manager Louis van Gaal's assistant and also shortly taken charge as caretaker manager after David Moyes' exit.

The 43 years old was strongly allied with the Swansea City vacancy before they elected for Paul Clement and Giggs believes his first club has to be a good fit.

"The only one I can really say is Swansea," Giggs told the Daily Mail when asked about the teams he has been in contact with.

"I feel like I've done my apprenticeship with two years of brilliant education under Louis. If the right club and the right chairman comes along, I'll be ready.

"I'd rather go into a decent League One or Championship team, who've got the right ideas and the right aspirations, than a Premier League team who haven't."

Ryan Giggs advised his reputation as a player - winning 13 English Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two UEFA Champions Leagues in 24 years at Manchester United - may count against him.

"It frustrates me when you hear people say, 'You can't just expect to walk into any job'," Giggs said. "Well, I think it works against us actually.

"It can stop you getting jobs. It can hinder, not help. They see the player rather than the coach.

"That's understandable, because I was playing for so long and only coached for two years. But I've been preparing for it for 10 years, because I started my badges at 30. It really doesn't matter to me where.”

"It's a minefield out there, though. You see Warren Joyce, who I worked with for so long. Four months in a job [at Wigan Athletic] - and he's a very good coach. Very easily your reputation can be ruined in that first job.”
