Ryan Giggs set to quit Manchester United in the summer

Ryan Giggs is set to quit Manchester United both as a player and a coach in the summer, according to the Sunday People.

The 40-year old Welshman has played only a bit-part role this campaign but started the match with Bayern Munich at Old Trafford in midweek, as well as the clash with Olympiakos.

However, he could hang up his boots at the end of the season and sources close to the player claim he decline a coaching role under David Moyes.

It is thought Giggs - who has made a staggering 962 appearances for the club - feels the environment post-Ferguson is not conducive to him learning the coaching trade.

Whilst his decision to retire from playing appears imminent, Giggs turning down being part of the coaching staff may surprise a few as it was thought he would be an ideal fit for the role once his illustrious playing career comes to a halt.

It is not known whether the winger, who has been at the forefront of United's success for over two decades, will look to find a job with another club.

Fellow Old Trafford legend Paul Scholes also declined a permanent role with the under-19 setup alongside Nicky Butt.

Scholes, Butt, Giggs and the Neville brothers recently launched a joint venture as they bought local non-league club Salford City.
