Management ambitions of midfielder Ryan Giggs revealed

The Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs reveals his ambitions of going into management or coaching after his retirement from regular football career. The 38-year old Welsh footballer who plays as a midfielder also made his 900th appearance for the Red Devils last term but has just one year left on his current sporting deal. Giggs admits that he was quite tempted towards coaching in recent times and is preparing to look forward towards that direction. At an international level, Ryan Giggs has played for the Welsh national team before his retirement from the international football scene in the year 2007 and was once the youngest player to represent his nation.

Ryan Giggs is also named as one of the three over aged players for the Great Britain team to compete at 2012 Summer Olympics and was later on named as the teams’ captain. Giggs informed that in the middle of the last season he had completed his Uefa A License and is on the threshold of gathering more knowledge as much as he can, thereby preparing as best as he can for entering into management or coaching.

The Cardiff born mid fielder informed that he is looking to take as much as possible from the experience of captaining the Team GB football squad at the Olympics this summer. The rumors regarding the job as Wales’s manager was linked with Ryan Giggs when John Toshack resigned in 2010 that was followed by the death of Gary Speed in 2011. Giggs has signed a one year contract extension with the Red Devils in February.  Ryan Giggs is one of the five Welsh players in Great Britain’s 18-man squad for the men’s football competition at London Olympics-2012.

Rooney tipped to break Sir Bobby Charlton’s Manchester United all-time goal scoring record

Sir Alex Ferguson, the manager of Football club Manchester United has backed Wayne Rooney to go all the way and beat Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time goal scoring record for Manchester United.

Sir Bobby scored 249 goals in his 17 year old association with United; many people at the time believed none could ever eclipse the record. Today, Wayne Rooney stands at 178 at fourth place just one behind George Best and Dennis Viollet. At 26, he is just 71 goals behind the great Charlton; one would assume it would just be a matter of time.

Ruud Vaan Nistelroy, the Dutch striker who had a rich haul at Manchester United scored a whopping 150 goals in five years. Sir Alex feels there is nothing that is stopping Wayne Rooney from becoming the greatest ever to play for Manchester United. “He has time on his side to beat all types of records,” said Ferguson. “There is every chance of beating Bobby’s record. He is on track to beat it and I am sure he will do it.”
