Giggs: Leaving United a possibility

The Welshman, who was caretaker coach at the Red Devils following David Moyes’ axing, is now Louis van Gaal’s number two on the United bench, yet revealed he would consider a move away from the club if an opportunity arose.

"I've been at the club for so long that I'm familiar with the club but if I want to further my coaching career or managing career and if it's not at Manchester United then so be it - but I'll just have to wait and see," Giggs told Sky Sports.

The 40-year-old says he is constantly learning under the mentorship of Van Gaal, yet is not eyeing the hotseat at Old Trafford just yet.

“I’m learning all the time,” he told talkSPORT. “The more I learn the better prepared I am for whatever I do, wherever that may be.

“Taking over at Manchester United is not something I’m thinking of though. I loved the experience last season, it was the best ever.

“You can do all the coaching badges and leadership stuff but actually being there for three weeks was invaluable. I’m serving my apprenticeship again.”
