Man Utd's Giggs tipped for big future after retirement

Former Manchester United academy chief Eric Harrison believes Ryan Giggs will be a big success for the club off the pitch.

Harrison, who nurtured him at youth level before his early promotion to Sir Alex Ferguson's senior side in 1991 and also coached him at international level when he was Welsh assistant to Mark Hughes, told the Manchester Evening News: "When the day comes to finish, and we are talking three or four seasons yet, he'll be great as an ambassador or in coaching because he is always prepared to help younger players out.

"He is a fantastic role model for kids. His behaviour is impeccable. When he was with Wales if ever a new player came into the squad he'd be there passing on advice and help."
