Reports disagree on Giggs' future

Alex Livesey

According to one set of sources, Ryan Giggs is not being considered for the manager's job beyond the end of this season. According to another, he just might be.

The BBC has learned. They don't say how they've learned it, or who from. They don't even bother to claim to have any sources close to the players, or the board, or the dressing room. No, they have simply learned it it isolation.

This is what they have learned. They have learned that Ryan Giggs, Manchester United's interim player-manager, is not under consideration for the job on a permanent basis. The job of manager, that is. A long-term interim player manager would make no sense. Apparently ...

the Premier League club feel an experienced manager is required to guide them back to the top of English football following this season's slump.

Entirely logical. For all that Giggs is as pure Manchester United as it gets, he's a novice coach with minimal experience, and now is not the time for wild punts or sentiment. Unless, of course, it is. For over on ESPN, Miguel Delaney is suggesting precisely the opposite.

Ryan Giggs still has a chance of being appointed Manchester United manager on a permanent basis, club sources have told ESPN, although the front-runner remains Louis van Gaal.

These club sources really need to sort their stories out.
