Ryan Giggs' remarkable playing career has been hailed time-and-time again since he announced his retirement from the game back in 2014. 

The Welshman wowed crowds during his unbelievable 24-year career at Old Trafford - he starred in as many as 672 Premier League matches - and has rightly been hailed as a genius by so many who have watched the game. 

As a youngster, Giggs used his speed and trickery to leave defenders in a daze while he adapted with ease as he approached the latter stages of his career. Even in the final few years of his on-pitch career, the former Wales international played a crucial role for his beloved club.

Giggs was a truly talented player, but will he be able to prove his credentials as a manager? That remains to be seen, of course; as it stands, he appears to be waiting in the wings at Old Trafford. 

With Louis van Gaal's future in the game unclear, there may well come a time for Giggs to step up. It will certainly prove a risk for all involved, but it could be one worth taking for the United hierarchy. 

Should Giggs replace Van Gaal as United manager? Have your say below!
