Ryan Giggs set for Manchester United exit
Ryan Giggs looks to be on the verge of ending his 29 year association with Manchester United following Jose Mourinho's appointment as manager. Having previously served as assistant manager under Louis van Gaal and briefly as caretaker manager in 2014, Giggs now looks likely to leave Old Trafford as he hopes to form a career in management.
Mourinho is likely to bring in his trusted right hand man Rui Faria as his number two meaning a shift in job role for Giggs. It is believed that the United playing legend has been offered a role that would see him bridge the gap between the senior team and the Under 21's though after considering his options on holiday in Dubai, Giggs is set to end his tenure with the club for whom he appeared 963 times as a player.
With Giggs now hoping to land a managerial role of his own, the question is just where he could begin. His desire has always been to manage United and the 42-year-old has reportedly expressed his concerns that he may never be successful enough elsewhere to ever earn a return to the top job at Old Trafford. However it now seems he will have to earn his stripes elsewhere with a view to returning to United in the future.
A move to another Premier League club looks unlikely, though the vacancy at Everton has yet to be filled. However reports now suggest that Ronald Koeman could bet set to take over at Goodison Park. That could yet provide another vacancy at St. Mary's though with Koeman's future not yet decided, the bookmakers are not currently offering that market. Numerous Championship clubs could provide Giggs the platform to take over however, and he is available at 33/1 with Skybet for both the Nottingham Forest and Reading jobs.
This is a market that is likely to gather far more interest once any announcement is confirmed regarding his future, but if the reports are to be believed then a market on Ryan Giggs' next role is not far off.
