Ryan Giggs has been appointed Manchester United's assistant manager following Louis van Gaal's arrival at the club.

Manchester United finally announced the deal earlier today after weeks of speculation linking the Dutchman with the vacant post.

Reports had suggested that Giggs was debating whether to stay at Old Trafford under Van Gaal or continue his coaching career elsewhere.

However Giggs has chosen to stay at the club where he has been plying his trade on a professional basis since 1990.

The Welshman may have a pivotal role to play during the summer as Van Gaal will be occupied with the Netherlands national team at the World Cup.

Giggs, speaking to Manchester United's official website, said on working under Van Gaal: "I am thrilled to have the chance to serve as assistant manager.

"Louis van Gaal is a world-class coach and I know I will learn a lot about coaching from being able to observe and contribute at such close quarters.

"Manchester United has been a huge part of my life and I'm delighted to be able to continue that relationship in such a key role."

Giggs will be joined on Van Gaal's coaching staff by Marcel Bout and Frans Hoek.

It remains to be seen if the newly-appointed manager - who has signed a three-year deal at Manchester United - will find a role at the club for Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt or Chris Woods.
