Ryan Giggs Set to be Offered Coaching Role at Manchester United

ryan giggs Ryan Giggs Set to be Offered Coaching Role at Manchester United

Ryan Giggs is reportedly close to agreeing a deal with Manchester United that will see him stay on at the club for one more season in a coaching role as well as being available for the first-team.

The 39-year-old midfielder has already signed a one-year extension at Manchester United but isn’t expected to get much playing time next season. At the same time, Giggs has almost completed his coaching badges.

“I’ve done that while I’m playing, which at times can be tough, doing homework and going on courses, or doing coaching sessions after training,” said Giggs, in an interview with The Daily Mirror.

Giggs, however, hasn’t decided whether he wants to be a full-time coach yet.

“Whether I’ll do it straight away or take a bit of time off when I finish, I don’t know,” he added.
