Giggs: I'm waiting for the right club

Cape Town - Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is waiting for the right club to make his managerial debut for after missing out on the Swansea job earlier this season.

Giggs left Old Trafford during the summer after a spell as assistant to Louis van Gaal, and outlined his intention to step into management.

The 42-year-old was interviewed for the Swansea job prior to Bob Bradley’s appointment in October, but the former Wales international insists he is staying patient over the next step in his coaching career.

“You know what it is like in football, jobs come and go really quickly, so if it has to be next year, then so be it," said Giggs.

"I spoke to them [Swansea]  so I was pretty close! It was a good experience for me to speak to them, but like I said before, it just was not to be.

“But I also said that if there were teams that matched my ambitions, and the same philosophy and way of working - working with the youth system - realistic ambitions, a well-run club, then I would speak to them.

"I do not think that a club should just interview you, you should also interview them, and if they are not right for you, then you should have the right to turn them down.

"Sometimes it is just a casual chat and then it moves on a step and you will speak again. And then it can be a presentation, power point presentations that you have learned in your coaching badges and your pro licence.

“It is quite relaxed at first, but if that goes well then you take it on to the next level. And that is something from the Swansea interview I learned a lot and I think like anything, the more you do things, the better you get."
