(GSM) – Manchester United’s Welsh legend Ryan Giggs admits he would be interested in managing his national team in the future.
Current Wales’ boss John Toshack is expected to resign after six years in charge and reports have suggested that the country’s Football Association could approach Giggs.
The Manchester United midfielder, who retired from international football in 2007, maintains that he cannot take such a role at the current time as he remains committed to his playing career.
He nevertheless concedes that it would be a dream to manage his country one day and understands that such appointments can happen overnight, taking current Fulham manager Mark Hughes as an example.
“If you go into management, the big job is to be in charge of your country. And I’m no different in terms of thinking like that,” Giggs, who has already taken Uefa coaching badges, said in the Daily Telegraph.
“At the moment it is difficult, because I still have commitments as a player.
“But I always use the Sparky (Mark Hughes) situation.
“One minute he is playing for Wales and in the Premier League with Blackburn, then the next thing you know, he is managing his country.
“Sparky never really planned for that.”
