Wales coach Ryan Giggs: Man Utd job chance? It won't come around again

Wales coach Ryan Giggs admits he may've missed the boat regarding the Manchester United job.

Giggs had a short stint as caretaker after the sacking of David Moyes in 2014.

He told The Greatest Game podcast: “If I'm honest, I wanted the job [after Moyes was sacked]. But I wasn't ready.

“There is a trend at the moment with younger coaches who have played for the club getting the jobs.

“At that time there was still a lot of the older managers coming in. They were seen as safe. I wanted the job when I had those four games, but I wasn't ready.

“I was definitely ready after Louis [was sacked] and I wanted the job but I was nowhere near it.

“I'm more ready now but I think that's gone now, I think the chance has gone now.

“I think it's gone, I've done it. I'm happy with the job I've got. I can't see that coming around again."
