Ryan Giggs has once again expressed that he wants to become a manager, but he downplayed the rumors that he would be in line to take over Wales.
The Manchester United legend left the club this summer after spending the past three seasons as assistant manager to David Moyes and Louis van Gaal. He had a brief spell in charge after Moyes was sacked, and it’s no secret that he wants to manage a team.
“Ultimately I want to be a coach, I want to be a manager,” Giggs told BBC Sport. “I want to have my own team. And of course I’ve got my own ideas, I’ve got my own thoughts on how the game should be played but I’m in no rush.
“I’ve had a tremendous education. I had a great two years working under Louis [van Gaal] – a fantastic experience for me as a young coach to see someone like that up close first hand – seeing how he works. And of course I’ve got my own ideas, I’ve got my own thoughts on how the game should be played but I’m in no rush.
“I’m enjoying life at the moment, how long that will last I don’t know if I miss it. I don’t miss it at the moment but ultimately I want to get back in the game as a manager.”
With Wales national team manager Chris Coleman being wanted by Hull City, speculation started that Giggs would take over. When asked about it, Giggs didn’t want to speculate.
“They’ve [Wales] got a fantastic team, but like I say Cookie’s [Coleman] the manager so until something happens I can’t answer the question,” Giggs said.
“It was a brilliant summer and I was over in France to witness it. For a country like Wales who hadn’t been involved in major championships for so long to get to that stage of the Euros was unbelievable.
“But at the moment Cookie is the manager and is doing a fantastic job.”
