Giggs Would Be A Fool To Leave For Wales

 Giggs Would Be A Fool To Leave For Wales
With John Toshack standing down as manager of Wales rumours of a possible first managerial job for Welsh star Ryan Giggs have surfaced. But Sir Alex Ferguson has quickly quashed the speculation linking the evergreen winger with his first move in to management.

Ferguson said:  “We have to be selfish here; I am not even prepared to negotiate on this matter. At his age, Ryan needs to use all his energy and concentration to be here.

“It is a big season for him. It may be his second last, it may be his last. We want it to be the second last. The best way for that to happen is for him to concentrate on being here.”

The Manchester United boss is quite right to stand his ground. Because Giggs, even at 36, still has so much to offer Ferguson.  His stunning volley against Newcastle United on the opening weekend of the season demonstrated just that, and Ferguson quite rightly wouldn’t want to lose a player who still has the ability produce moments of magic like that.

It had been suggested that Giggs could continue playing and manage Wales on a part time basis, but it would be nothing short of madness for him to cut short his playing career to leave for a job which is nothing more than a stepping stone to better jobs. Players should always look to make the most their career before turning to another profession.

Giggs is no different and without meaning to disrespect Wales I would imagine he has much greater aspirations from his career should he make the step away from playing and in to the managerial hot-seat.

In the future I have no doubt that Giggs will manage Wales, and I’d imagine that as soon as he retires whoever is in charge will become under much greater pressure because one Wales’ favourite son’s would be available to step in. That is why Giggs would be nothing short of a fool if he was to take the job now, because he is guranteed the job whenever he wants it.

    Couldn’t agree more. The job is his whenever he wants it.

    I see no point. Let him play 2 more years. He can go into theyr’e coaching ranks, and being they could not beat Montenegro, what is the real odds they qualify for Euro 2012?

    Have him come in ready to manage by 2014 for the Euro quaifiers then. He will still be no older than 40
