Cape Town - Former Manchester United legend and next season's assistant coach at Old Trafford, Ryan Giggs, has reported for Soccer World Cup duty - at the SuperSport studios in Randburg.

Giggs will head up a stellar cast of analysts and experts for SuperSport’s coverage of the tournament, starting on Thursday at 22:00 SA time.
Giggs will be a studio analyst, offering his insight during build-ups, half-time and post-match.
Recently-retired Giggs is the most decorated player in English football history and is fresh off his recent assignment as interim manager of Manchester United.
His staggering football CV includes 34 career trophies and 963 appearances for Manchester United dating back to his debut in March 1991.
"We have contracted a world class player for a world class event," said Alvin Naicker, Head of Production of SuperSport.

"Ryan Giggs represents the very best of football. He is in a class of his own.

"Ryan is a massively popular figure on the continent and we expect his expert views will be much anticipated and enjoyed during this coming World Cup."

On Wednesday, Giggs was in-studio where he met up with former Liverpool rival, John Barnes, who will also be on duty for SuperSport.
