Wales consider Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs for senior job

Wales consider Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs for senior job

Ryan Giggs' lengthy wait for a job in the chaotic world of football management could finally be over after it was revealed that the rookie boss was interviewed for the Wales vacancy.

The former Wales global joins a host of other candidates who have been interviewed by the Welsh FA which include, Craig Bellamy, Osian Roberts and Mark Bowen, with the Welsh officials understood to be aiming to make the appointment of Chris Coleman's successor as early as Monday.

Wales have been without a manager since Chris Coleman stepped down in November to take over at Sunderland.

Giggs is said to have spent the last few weeks fine tuning his presentation style ahead of the interview which included a detailed overview of the country's youth development program.

Bellamy, who played alongside Giggs for Wales, has also made no secret of his desire to manage his country, saying he will "probably be interested in it for the rest of my life".


He subsequently worked as an assistant at United for two years under Louis van Gaal but left when Jose Mourinho took charge in the summer of 2016.

Since moving on from Manchester United, Ryan Giggs has been unemployed with some believing he's waiting for the main job to be vacant once more to lead his former club to its former heights.

Having been interested in the Swansea job, it eventually fizzled out into nothing but it seems as though Wales are seriously considering Giggs as their man.

And with Wales out of the upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation, a change of tactical edge may exponate their chances of traveling to the biggest sporting event on the planet in four years of time.
