Ryan Giggs Ends 3 Decades Stay With Man United @RyanGiggs_cc @ManUtd
Manchester United legend, Ryan Giggs is finally set to end his 29-year association with Manchester United after rejecting Jose Mourinho’s offer of reduced coaching role believing that Old Trafford has gone back on an agreement to give him the top job after he served under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.
Although he has yet to speak directly with Mourinho, reports say that Giggs’s representatives are now in negotiations with United over a pay-off for the final year of his contract.
Giggs made a club-record 963 appearances for United after joining the club on his 14th birthday in 1987, and went on to win the Champions League twice, 13 Premier League titles and the FA Cup four times.
When United agreed to let Mourinho bring in his own team, including trusted No 2 Rui Faria, Giggs was offered a lesser role aimed at bridging the gap between the senior squad and academy following talks with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
Meanwhile, reports say that Jose Mourinho will rush back from holiday a week early to get cracking at Manchester United.
And he will then hold covert talks with Sir Alex Ferguson before dismantling the ‘Big Brother’ cameras installed by former boss Louis van Gaal.
According to reports, the Portuguese will return to work a week ahead of schedule to cook up a masterplan with Fergie to return the club to the summit of English football and also to tear down the cameras at the club’s Carrington training ground which sacked boss Van Gaal had installed.
The Dutchman requested the cameras be put in alongside training pitches as part of £3million worth of improvements when he took over in the summer of 2014.
Van Gaal initially wanted to implement a 3-4-1-2 formation with United’s players, after his success with it at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with his Netherlands team.
He wanted to use the cameras to study players’ progress as he coached them new tactics.
