He’s been with the club 29 years but the time has come for Ryan Giggs to finally say goodbye to Manchester United according to Sky Sports.
After taking over as interim player manager after David Moyes was sacked in 2014 and then as an assistant coach to Louis van Gaal, he had pinned his hopes on being offered the available manager job after Van Gaal was sacked.
However, last week it was announced that Jose Mourinho had filled the position and intended to bring on board his own trusted assistant Rui Faria, leaving Giggs frustrated with the option of a lesser role offered to him.
Mourinho had been hoping Giggs would extend his 29 year association with the club by finding a job for him on his coaching staff.
Earlier this week reports had suggested that the club offered Giggs a role designed to bridge the gap between the first team and Under 21s, but this information is now said to be inaccurate.
But the Welshman, who signed for the club as a 14 year-old star, is said to be looking for a job in management and according to Sky Bet, the 42-year-old is 1/4 favourite to take charge at Bolton Wanderers.
Giggs who is currently in Dubai on a weeks holiday with his family and scheduled to return this weekend, had been encouraged by several high profile United players to leave the club and forge his own management career away from Old Trafford.
Bolton Wanderers have been managerless since the beginning of March, when Neil Lennon who left the team by mutual consent, left the side when they were 11 points from safety at the foot of the table with nine games left to play.
During Lennon’s 17 month term Bolton had been dogged by financial troubles and the team has since been relegated to League One.
If Giggs did take the role that Bolton need filled it would mean a step down, however it would mean he could remain in the north-west.
