Giggs not in for Wales job… for now

(GSM) – Manchester United star Ryan Giggs has ruled himself out of the running for the Wales’ national team’s vacant managerial hot seat for now.

The 36-year-old insists that he finds the post appealing for the future but he remains focused on his playing role at United.

Some have tipped the United winger to follow in the footsteps of former United ace Mark Hughes, who took over the Wales’ job in 1999 while still a player at Southampton.

But Giggs insists he cannot do the same move as he is currently committed for his career at Old Trafford.

He said: “I am playing for Manchester Unitedand am fully focussed on that.

“I just don’t think you can do the two, especially at a club like United.

“I know Mark Hughes did them but it is a little bit different when you are playing Champions League.”

Giggs, who has been taking his Uefa coaching badges, admits he would like to be manager of his country in the future.

“One day I would like to do it but I didn’t think about it this time,” he said.

“Before I get any job I want to get all the necessary qualifications, I wouldn’t take a job until I had them.

“I am halfway through my Uefa ‘A’ Licence at the moment, the idea being that I will be ready for it when I do finish.”

While the Cardiff-born star admits he does not know whether he will like management until he tries it, he wants to maintain a link with the game when his playing days are over.

“I honestly don’t know whether I would like it. Until you try it how can you?” he said.

“I will probably either love it or hate it.

“I enjoy helping young players and being out on the training ground. I enjoy the buzz of the game.

“But when you are not playing you are going to lose all that. How do you get it back? Coaching or managing.”
