Ryan Giggs to become Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor at Manchester Untied
After signing a one-year contract with his beloved team earlier this week, Ryan Giggs has ensured he will remain a Manchester United player for his 22nd season as a player and club member. However, it seems like the Old Trafford boss, Sir Alex Ferguson has other plans for him. According to the Scotsman, Giggs would do well if he takes up a managerial role.
Ferguson is still unsure about his retirement date but he is expected to hold the reins of Manchester United for three more seasons. Although, Ferguson has talked much about his retirement he is believed to have told his friends that Giggs has great potential to become as his successor.
The 38-year-old Giggs is in remarkable form despite his age. The Welshman regularly produces top notch performances and often starts in the starting lineup. Speculation about Giggs is that he might actually become some sort of a playing-manager-in-training with Ferguson.
Critics might state that Giggs is too inexperienced to coach a big club like Manchester United however he has been playing under the legendary Scottish gaffer for over 21 years. Being coached by Ferguson over such a long period would have certainly trained Giggs.
Currently, Giggs is taking his coaching badges, which will provide him the necessary qualifications to apply for a managerial position. Giggs has been at the heart of every campaign Manchester United has run since the Welshman’s arrival, therefore he would a thing or two about acquiring silverware.
Manchester United greats are already lining up to offer Giggs their support if he does become the new manager Manchester United. One of Ferguson’s favorite, Paul Scholes has stepped forth with praise for Giggs. In a recent interview, Scholes told reporters that he reckoned Giggs would be a successful manager if he takes the reins of Manchester United.
“People have talked about Jose Mourinho. It can change quickly – it is about who’s successful at the time,” Scholes said in an interview to FourFourTwo magazine. “Whether they are British or foreign, you just want the best man for the job. I could see Ryan Giggs becoming manager.”
