Paul Scholes hopes Ryan Giggs becomes Manchester United manager
Paul Scholes hopes his former teammate Ryan Giggs can become the Manchester United manager in the future.
Louis van Gaal is expected to see out his three-year contract with the Red Devils, which expires in the summer of 2017, and Scholes hopes Giggs will be the man selected to replace the veteran Dutch coach at Old Trafford.
Giggs has been working as Van Gaal’s assistant since last summer - and Scholes feels this will ultimately put his close friend in good stead to eventually take the job himself on a permanent basis.
“I don’t think there is a British manager who is currently capable of restoring English clubs to the final stages of the Champions League, and winning the competition again,” Scholes wrote in his latest Independent column. “I take no pleasure in offering that verdict but unfortunately it is the way things are at the moment.
“I hope that it will change in the future and I have high hopes that my friend Ryan Giggs will be handed the reins at Manchester United at some point having served an apprenticeship under Louis van Gaal.”
