Giggs excited about new Man Utd player-coaching role

Manchester United player-coach Ryan Giggs is excited by his new job this season.

The Welshman says he's enjoyed his first forays into coaching, although he still considers himself a player first and foremost.

"I got the call [from David Moyes] when I was in Turkey [over the summer] doing my coaching badges," he told Inside United.

"My initial thoughts were about how it would affect the playing side of things because I was obviously preparing to play for another year.

"I spoke to a few people and had a think about it and I could only see plus points; I couldn't see any minuses. It's an exciting chance for me and one that I couldn't turn down."
