Man Utd future uncertain for U21s boss Joyce

Warren Joyce's future at Manchester United has been thrown into some doubt.

The approach from Championship club Blackburn Rovers last week had already clouded Joyce's position as U21 head coach at United but fresh reports have cast further doubt over his tenure.

Louis van Gaal's dismissal on Monday will see Jose Mourinho appointed as the new Red Devils boss this week and it is believed that the Portuguese could offer club legend Ryan Giggs the U21s post.

Mourinho will bring his trusted right-hand man Rui Faria with him to Manchester, essentially putting van Gaal's assistant Giggs out of a job, but it is understood that the incoming manager wants to retain the services of the Welsh great.

If Giggs is interested in the U21 role, it could push Joyce towards Ewood Park, but the 51-year-old wants to know where he stands with Mourinho before making a call on his future.
