Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has told Ryan Giggs he's responsible for not allowing more of their top kids from leaving.

The Mail on Sunday says Giggs has been told that one of his major jobs as assistant-manager to the incoming Louis van Gaal is to be a liaison between the under-21 development squad and the first-team.

He will be expected to recommend to the Dutchman which players are ready to step up to train with the senior squad and who has the potential to play alongside the likes of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney in competitive games.
