Kluivert reveals Giggs presence blocked Man Utd move

Holland assistant coach Patrick Kluivert admits he'd be at Manchester United today if not for Ryan Giggs.

Kluivert says Louis van Gaal was keen to take him to Old Trafford.

"I talked with Van Gaal and he said he would have loved to have given me the opportunity at Manchester United, but there was somebody already in my position," he told talkSPORT.

"I'm fine with it. I would have loved to come to Manchester United. I hope it can happen in the future, you never know."
