Ryan Giggs has sent a stark warning to Manchester United officials that he may not be around for next season.

The Welshman has been placed in temporary charge of the team following the sacking of David Moyes but his future at the club as both a player, coach or manager is in some doubt.

Louis van Gaal looks set to become the next permanent manager for next season and it is believe the Dutchman is not keen on having Giggs on his coaching staff.

Also, at 40-years-old, Giggs is likely to end his playing career after more than 20 seasons at Old Trafford. Speaking today, Giggs says that his future is still up in the air and all routes are being explored - even leaving Manchester United altogether.

Asked if Giggs would want to be No.2 to Van Gaal or any new manager, he said: "I have got to decide if I want to play or not so there is no point thinking if I want to be an assistant or if I want to be a manager somewhere else.

"There are so many things to think about. The way I am thinking is I am enjoying it and then my concentration is on the remaining two games and then like I have just said, we will see what happens at the end of the season."

Following Manchester United's 4-0 win over Norwich on Giggs' managerial debut, there are growing calls from fans and pundits for Giggs to be considered for the job. Three more wins in the final three Premier League games would only see those calls increase.

However, Giggs says that he is just focusing on his job at the moment and is not thinking about next season.

"Nothing has changed - it's until the end of the season. We'll chat when that's over," he said. "I've got a lot to think about, whether to carry on playing. But my concentration is just on now. The only peace and quiet you do get is when you are on the training pitch. As soon as you are back in the office, you have meetings, you have calls.

"For example this week has been planning pre-season, which has been testing because we have to way and see about the Europa League and the third qualifying round for that is round about the tour time, so different permutations.

"Also it is a difficult time for young players, extending contracts, renewing contracts, loan players, players that need to come back, players that need their future sorting out so there has been a lot of that this week."
