Ryan Giggs not ready for Manchester United job, says legend

Published 3 Comments

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane believes the clubs have taken the right decision not to offer Ryan Giggs the opportunity to take the role of manager on a full-time basis, claiming it is ‘way too soon’ for the Old Trafford icon to assume the position permanently.

Giggs was appointed interim manager following the sacking of David Moyes with the ex-Everton boss just 10 months into his six-year contract with the 2012-13 Premier League champions. Manchester United, however, have taken the decision not to give Giggs the job beyond the four games he was tasked with overseeing.

Louis van Gaal, currently in charge the Netherlands, is reported to have agreed a deal to become the next permanent manager of Manchester United, while Giggs is set to be rewarded with a senior role on the coaching staff.

Keane, meanwhile, expects Giggs to benefit from the experience of working under Van Gaal at Old Trafford rather than being thrown into management with only a limited amount of experience under his belt.

“Giggs did well in the four games he was in charge,” Keane, who captained Manchester United to four titles, told talkSPORT. “He got two victories, a draw and a defeat, it was a mixed bag.

“I’m sure he’s enjoyed the experience. He’s said he wants to become a manager but I certainly think it was way too early for him to get the Man United job.

“If he’s kept on under Van Gaal, he’ll only learn more.”
