Ryan Giggs has decided to leave Manchester United after 29 years at the club, according to the Daily Mirror.
The newspaper is reporting that Giggs will reject Manchester United’s offer of a place in Jose Mourinho’s backroom staff in order to pursue a managerial career elsewhere, with Championship side Nottingham Forest interested in offering the former winger their manager’s job.
However, Nottingham Forest are believed to be considering other options as well.
Ryan Giggs is one of Manchester United’s biggest legends. He’s been at United since 1987 and made his professional debut for the club in 1990.
He holds the all-time record for most Manchester United appearances, having played 963 games for the club – 200 more than second-placed Sir Bobby Charlton.
It’d be sad to see Giggs leave after nearly 3 decades at Old Trafford, but it’d be the right move for his career. If he wants to have a chance of ever becoming Manchester United manager, he needs to leave in order to prove his managerial credentials.
Taking charge of Nottingham Forest would be a fantastic move for Giggs. He’d be able to start his managerial career at a historically big club and would have the chance to try and bring the club back to the Premier League.
