Giggs was appointed to the role earlier this month and is learning the ropes alongside the Redsâ€™ new backroom team, though heâ€™s not immersed in the job entirely yet.
"It has worked well so far and I am excited about it," he told manutd.com. "It is about getting the balance right because I am still playing but I have enjoyed it so far.
"The manager likes to coach and we have Jim Lumsden, Steve Round and Phil Neville, so there is not a big emphasis on that at the moment. It is looking behind the scenes and seeing how everything works.
"It is completely different from playing. Even though I have been playing for 20-odd years, I am seeing the other side of it, how we prepare for games. It is something I had not experienced as a player. Some things I knew, others I didn't. It has been a real education."
