Ryan Giggs To Take Charge At Nottingham Forest After Manchester United Exit

Published on:


Ryan Giggs is all set to move away from Manchester United and is on the verge of taking up a permanent managerial role this summer.

FootTheBall sources confirm that the Manchester United legend is on the brink of taking charge at Nottingham Forest as a full-time manager.

After serving the club for 29 long years as a player, coach and apprentice, Ryan Giggs has agreed to leave the club and hold the reins at the City Ground.

Giggs decided upon his future last week when he backed out of a trip to Euro 2016 to watch England lock horns against Wales in Lens.

Initially after taking charge as the new Manchester United manager, Mourinho had said that he will find a spot for Giggs in his support staff.

FootTheBall had earlier reported that Old Trafford legend Ryan Giggs had been given the opportunity to provide his services as a part of Jose Mourinho’s backroom coaching staff and not as an assistant manager. Mourinho had made it clear that he wanted to appoint his friend lieutenant Rui Faria as the No.2 (assistant manager).

However recent reports claim that Mourinho is against offering any new role to Old Trafford legend Ryan Giggs in his coaching staff in the upcoming season.


‘The Times’ report stated that Mourinho has decided against his previous statement as a result of Giggs’s ambitions to be manager himself, a role many thought would be his after Louis van Gaal was scheduled to leave in 2017.

Ryan Giggs had showed early sparks when he played the role of an interim manager after David Moyes was sacked back in the year 2014. In a four-match short stint as a manager, he pulled up 2 wins, including one defeat and a draw.

Ryan Giggs is understood to have a fair acumen in management and after serving as an assistant manager under Louis Van Gaal, the club legend has finally decided to put his skills to test and is expected to take charge at Nottingham Forest this summer.

Ryan Giggs will step into the boots of former coach Dougie Freedman. Nottingham Forest have sacked Freedman after 13 months in charge at the City Ground. It is believed that Ryan Giggs will replace interim manager Paul Williams in the upcoming Championship season.

Despite finishing in the 16th spot last season critics believe that the two-time European Cup winners Nottingham Forest has a fair chance of promoting themselves to the Premier League this season.

It is expected that Giggs will look forward to revamp the side and match the standards of the legendary club manager Brian Clough.
