Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is heading out to Turkey for an intensive week-long course as he looks to complete his UEFA Pro Licence badge.

The Old Trafford veteran will attend the FIFA Under-20 World Cup with former teammates Gary Neville and Paul Ince to take part in the course, according to the Daily Mail.

Giggs will be required to watch up to ten matches before completing a series of tasks and producing a case study.

The Welshman has been picking up his badges for some time now as he looks to prepare for life as a coach after he finally decides to retire from Manchester United.

It will be at least another year until Giggs hangs up his boots as he agreed another one-year extension to stay at Old Trafford for a 24th year.

It will be his first year without Sir Alex Ferguson as manager after the Scot’s decision to retire at the end of last season.

David Moyes succeeded Ferguson and Giggs is expected to play a key role in aiding the former Everton manager to settle in.

The report claims the 39-year-old took on some coaching duties last season and those extra responsibilities are expected to continue this season.

It also claims Giggs is hoping to receive the Pro Licence, which is required to manage at the highest level, next summer.
