Mourinho is reportedly favourite to become United manager.

Ryan Giggs would be wise to stay at Manchester United if Jose Mourinho takes over

Published Add your comment

With various reports suggesting Jose Mourinho will replace Louis van Gaal as Manchester United manager this summer, fans have been forced to question where exactly Ryan Giggs will fit into the Portuguese's plans.

Upon Van Gaal's arrival at Old Trafford, it seemed set in stone that his Welsh counterpart would take the role of assistant manager to gain the necessary experience needed to one day become manager.

This doesn't appear to be the case, however, with Mourinho seemingly likely to swoop in and take the job that Giggs - and quite likely so - might feel he is entitled to.

So what might come of the 42-year-old should Mourinho indeed take charge? Well, given his desire to make headway into management and his chances of managing the Red Devils ever-decreasing, a move away might be possible.

After waiting so patiently for his moment to prove his worth as a manager, it would perhaps come as a kick in the teeth to Giggs were he to be usurped by a man who once took charge of a club rival - Chelsea.

On the other hand, staying at United and working under Mourinho could potentially be some of the best managerial mentoring available.

The 53-year-old has yielded success wherever he has managed, suggesting his tutelage would be the best possible means of growth for Giggs, much like how he could have learnt under Sir Alex Ferguson.


And at the end of it all, having played under Ferguson and learnt from the likes of David Moyes, Van Gaal and Mourinho as assistant manager, Giggs would have the experience and CV no team could turn down - not even Manchester United.
