Ryan Giggs could be about to take on his first job in management.
After being earmarked as a potential Manchester United manager, Ryan Giggs was quickly swept aside when Ed Woodward rolled out the red carpet for Jose Mourinho and his coaching team.
Although the legendary winger had been linked with a number of vacant positions over the course of the summer, it seems potential employers are ignoring Giggs’ achievements as a player, and focusing on his lack of managerial experience.
However, with Chris Coleman looking increasingly likely to replace Steve Bruce at Hull City, the Welsh FA are seriously considering prospect of employing Giggs as coach of the national team.
Indeed, according to the Sunday Mirror, Hull have offered to triple Coleman’s wages in an attempt to lure him to the KCOM Stadium.
If Giggs did take up the role, he would be following in Mark Hughes’ footsteps, who also began his managerial career with Wales.
However, as Gianfranco Zola is also in contention for the Hull job, the Welsh FA might yet keep hold of Coleman, whose stock as a manager rose quickly after Wales’ impressive Euro 2016 campaign.
