Video: Sir Alex Ferguson would return to help Ryan Giggs at Manchester United claims football writer

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly ready to return to the set-up at Old Trafford if Ryan Giggs becomes manager.

That’s the view of The People’s Steve Bates who insisted that the iconic figure at Old Trafford will be open to helping his former player.

Speaking on The Sunday Supplement on Sky Sports, Bates revealed that he had heard from his sources that the Scottish tactician would be ready to consider a proposal to return to the coaching setup in some capacity.

However, it remains to be seen whether or not the club continue to keep faith in Louis van Gaal, who still has a year to run on his contract after this season.

In the event that the Dutchman is removed from his position, Giggs, who has been working as an assistant, will be expected to step up and fill the void but will arguably need help given his inexperience as a head coach.

Having filled in on an interim basis previously, the Welshman has continued to develop his talent on the sidelines alongside Van Gaal, and coupled with the knowledge that he would have undoubtedly accumulated under Ferguson, the former winger would be a popular choice for United fans.

Nevertheless, Van Gaal will continue to fight for his job and with United defeating Liverpool on Sunday, the former Ajax boss will not have given up on the Premier League title just yet.
