Man Utd icon Giggs admits interest in Wales job

Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs admits he is interested in the Wales coaching post.

The 36-year-old's playing career may be drawing towards a conclusion but Giggs has continued to play a key role at Old Trafford in recent seasons and may not want to hang up his boots for a while yet.

He nevertheless concedes that it would be a dream to manage his country one day and knows from history that such appointments can be made very suddenly.

"If you go into management, the big job is to be in charge of your country. And I'm no different in terms of thinking like that," Giggs, who has already taken UEFA coaching badges, said in the Daily Telegraph.

"At the moment it is difficult, because I still have commitments as a player.

"But I always use the Sparky (Mark Hughes) situation.

"One minute he is playing for Wales and in the Premier League with Blackburn, then the next thing you know, he is managing his country.

"Sparky never really planned for that."
