Ryan Giggs could be offered a managerial return and it’s not in the Premier League

John Hartson says he expects the former man United player to be the next Wales manager

Ryan Giggs could be on his way back to management.

I say on his way back, you have to remember he was the caretaker manager at Man United after David Moyes was sacked in 2014.

Since then he has kept in the public eye as a full-time pundit.

But, he’s also seemingly thrown his hat in the ring for every Premier League job going.

On the continent former stars are happy to drop down the leagues to learn their trade before being parachuted into a big job.

For Giggs though, after his short taste of the fast lane at United – four games in the hot chair to be precise – he won’t settle for anything other than a top tier side.

Well until now. 

Giggs’ former Wales teammate John Hartson has told BBC Sport Wales that he believes the left footed winger will be chosen as the next manager of the national side after Chris Coleman left in November 2017.

“If Ryan Giggs wants it then I pretty much think it is his to take,” Hartson said in the interview

Hartson, Craig Bellamy and Coleman’s assistant Osian Roberts have all outlined their desire to be the next Wales boss.

“I think they’ve interviewed Ryan Giggs and one or two others, and if they show a big interest in taking the job then I think it will go to somebody else ahead of me,” Hartson added.

“If Ryan want it, he’s a big name, he’s someone who is out of work… someone who’s said he wants to go into managemnt if the right job came along, and they don’t come any bigger or better than the national job for Wales.”

There you go Giggs, it’s yours for the taking.

Don’t worry about Hartson, he’s not bitter at all.
