Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs to return as a player

Manchester United Interim manager, Ryan Giggs, is thinking about returning as a player for one more season at Old Trafford.

The Welsh legend, who has been handed over the responsibilities of seeing off the remaining games, is considering to put on his playing boots again after the uncertainty over his role under to-be-appointed manager Louis Van Gaal.

Van Gaal, who is on the brink of signing with United, will supposedly bring five backroom staff along with him which may see Giggs being demoted to a minor role. With the reinforcements of the Dutch, Giggs might not settle for a subdued place in the coaching ranks after he was offered for a first team coach under David Moyes.

Executive vice-president Ed Woodward, is lining up a contract signing for the Holland international boss sometime in next week, so that he can concentrate on the national side’s preparation for the World Cup.

Giggs’s continuation as a player will see him appear in United colours for a record 25th season.

Giggs said: “I’m constantly speaking to Ed, but developments change all the time.”

“At the moment, he’s just letting me get on with doing the best I can on the training pitch and preparing the team for winning the next three games.

“But I’ve got a lot to think about, such as whether to carry on playing. My concentration is just all about the here and now really and, at the end of the season, we’ll see what happens.

“My focus is on tomorrow and the remaining two games, but I’ve got to decide whether I’m going to play or not. There is no point thinking about if I want to be an assistant or a manager somewhere else. There’s so many things to think about.”
