Man Utd captain Neville: Giggs has potential to be great manager

Manchester United captain Gary Neville says teammate Ryan Giggs can be a managerial success.

In his column for the Sunday Times of Malta, Neville wrote: "He is someone that the Welsh public love and he's always going to get linked to that job because of his experience, quality and the fact that he's closer to the end of his career than the start.

"But I think Sir Alex Ferguson answered questions about this quite sternly last week when he said Giggsy is and will remain a Manchester United player.

"If one day Giggsy did go into management he would command huge respect immediately, which is important for a manager. He would have fantastic experience of all types of situations both at international level and club level, because he has played in all the top games and seen all different types of football in his time.

"You can never say for sure whether a player will go on and become a great manager but he certainly has the experience, patience and temperament for it. The raw attributes are there, but until someone actually becomes a manager no one knows how well they are going to do."
