Man Utd icon Giggs will be fearless in management – Coleman

Wales national team manager Chris Coleman has stated that Ryan Giggs is fully confident of succeeding in top level management.

Louis van Gaal was sacked as manager of Manchester United on Monday and it is widely believed that assistant coach Giggs could follow the Dutchman out and end his 29-year association with the club this summer.

If indeed Giggs departs Old Trafford, the 42-year-old is expected to try his hand at management elsewhere and ahead of his potential new adventure, former Wales teammate Coleman has backed the 'fearless' United legend to succeed.

Coleman said: "Giggsy is the sort of person who won't be fearful of anything. He sees the challenge because that what top players. They've got complete confidence in themselves. They're not afraid of failure.

"That stops a lot of people - that fear of failing and making themselves look silly. They don't try in the first place because they think, 'I can't do it and I'll make myself look silly'. But top sportsmen don't suffer with that.

"They don't care about looking foolish. They've got complete confidence in themselves and that's why they succeed. They're not afraid of failing and I'm sure Giggsy will be like that with management."
