Ryan Giggs drops Man Utd exit hint

Ryan Giggs has dropped yet another hint that he could be gearing up to leave Manchester United at the end of the season.

The Welsh winger has been with the Red Devils for every single Premier League campaign to date, and was installed as interim boss until the end of the season following David Moyes departure last month.

However speculation remains rife that Dutch boss Louis van Gaal will take over after the World Cup, and will be announced as permanent manager next week.

That has put Giggs, who is expected to retire from playing at the end of the current campaign, in a tricky position, with Van Gaal expected to bring his own coaching staff in.

While the 41-year-old admits that he won't ever play for any other club than Manchester United, he does see himself as management material - which could see him leave Old Trafford in pursuit of the top job elsewhere.

"I can only play for United. It's black and white, and it's not about money," he told reporters.

"I've been extremely lucky in that I have only ever worked at Manchester United, but I am still a young man in relative terms in management.

"I could have another 20 to 25 years in the game – and it might not all be spent at United. If I went elsewhere it would be strange, but I can see myself doing that.

"The association I have with Manchester United will always be special – if I have to do it I'll do it, but how it will feel I don't know."

Giggs suffered his first defeat as Manchester United boss against Sunderland yesterday, with his side going down 1-0 to a Sebastian Larsson strike in the first-half.

He now has two games of the season remaining to leave his mark, and the Red Devils legend admits he's tempted to throw himself into the mix in an attempt to maintain his record of scoring in every Premier League campaign so far.

"It might dawn on me on Monday or Tuesday. Then I might have to put myself on the bench against Hull," he said.

"The perfect scenario would be me coming on and scoring but football doesn't work like that."
