Giggs Admits He May Leave Man United

Manchester United interim-boss Ryan Giggs has admitted he may finally leave the Red Devils to further his coaching development. The midfielder has not played since the beginning of April, and looks set to finally draw a close to a career spanning 23 years, with 34 trophies in that time period.

Speaking about what could be his final appearance at Old Trafford against Hull City, Giggs said “It might dawn on me on Monday or Tuesday. Then I might have to put myself on the bench.”

United lost 1-0 to Sunderland who are fighting to get out of a relegation battle, but it added more misery to their disastrous first season without Sir Alex Feguson as manager. Louis Van Gaal looks increasingly likely to replace Giggs on a full time basis, as the Welshman is deputising the position following the sacking of David Moyes.

Giggs ruled out playing for another team, but is open to managing teams in the future.

“You can never say yes or no. I’m still a young man in relative terms in management.

“It’s my decision and whoever comes in, if they want me.”

United travel to Southampton for the concluding day of the season, which may well be Giggs’ final act at Manchester United. For now…
