Man United legend set to step down if Jose Mourinho becomes manager

Manchester United are running the risk of losing club legend Ryan Giggs if they appoint Jose Mourinho as their new manager, according to the BBC.

The former Welsh international has been with the Red Devils since the age of 13 and went on to make just short of 1,000 appearances for the club during an illustrious and successful playing career, and when he hung up his boots in 2014 he joined the back room staff.

He briefly took the reigns of the club following David Moyes’ dismissal but has been kept on under Louis van Gaal as his assistant manager.

And though Giggs is still highly regarded, van Gaal’s tenure at the club has gone sour, and he has been tipped to leave his post at the end of the season.

Jose Mourinho is the favourite to take over from the Dutchman, and should he be appointed Giggs will move on to begin his own managerial career.
