Ryan Giggs lined up to manage 11th best team in the world after Man United exit

Ryan Giggs is reportedly being lined up to manage Wales following his departure from Manchester United.

United legend Giggs left Old Trafford in early July after being at the club since 1987.

The 42-year-old’s departure was motivated by his desire to become a manager, according to United’s official website.

And Giggs could be about to get the opportunity he has been waiting for because The Mirror report that Wales will turn to him should they lose current boss Chris Coleman to Hull City.

The Mirror claim that Hull are ready to triple Coleman’s £1.5m-a-year salary in a bid to lure him back into club management.

Giggs is one of the greatest Wales players of all time, although he only made 64 senior appearances for his country.

Were Giggs to take the job it would be his first permanent role in management, with his only current experience coming during a short stint as United caretaker following the sacking of David Moyes in 2012.

The latest FIFA World Rankings rate Wales as the 11th best international team on the planet, two spots above England.
