Ryan Giggs demands coaching & player role at Manchester United

Published Add your comment

Ryan Giggs will meet Louis van Gaal tomorrow and demands a player and a coaching role in the Manchester United squad next season, reports the Daily Mirror.

THe 40-year-old was placed in temporary charge of the team following David Moyes' departure but has since relinquished the role. Van Gaal is expected to be confirmed as Manchester United's new manager of Thursday but will first hold talks with Giggs.

The future seems unclear for Giggs. He seems to have got a taste for management and has already opened up the possibility of leaving Old Trafford in favour of taking over somewhere else.

However, after being rejected by Manchester United officials for the full time role, he is set to meet with Van Gaal with the Dutchman keen to retain him for next season.

The Holland manager was reportedly willing to offer him a senior role on his coaching team but Giggs is going to request a place in the first team as well.

Giggs is keen to work with Van Gaal next season but wants to make sure his development as a coach isn't compromised by an honourary role. He wants to be involved with the action but also doesn't want to hang up his boots.

Manchester United officials are due in Amsterdam to tie up a deal with Van Gaal with the 62-year-old offering former Red Devils assistant manager Rene Meulensteen the chance to return to Old Trafford.
