Manchester United legend and assistant manager Ryan Giggs is reportedly open to the idea of succeeding Garry Monk as Swansea boss, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 42-year-old had initially been earmarked as the man to take over from Louis van Gaal in the Old Trafford hot seat when his contract expires in 2017, but could now begin his managerial career early.
Swansea, who gave Monk his marching orders on Monday after slumping to 15th in the table, are keen to give him the opportunity to show what he can do, and Giggs is open to the possibility of cutting his teeth elsewhere before taking the manager’s job at United.
Chairman Huw Jenkins is said to be interested in bringing somebody on board with previous Premier League experience, but also wants somebody that can command instant respect in the dressing room. Giggs has played more Premier League games than anybody else, and saw players respond favourably to his short spell in charge at United following David Moyes’ dismissal.
