United - Wales Courting Giggs!

United - Wales Courting Giggs!

Column inches continue to be generated relating to the possibility of Ryan Giggs becoming involved in the soon to be vacant Welsh national coach position.

It`s a subject we`ve already touched on this week whereby the possibility of Ryan taking up the post on a part-time basis was discussed.

Today though (Thursday), the tabloid press give differing views as to how such an approach for Ryan`s services, by the Football Association of Wales (FAW), could turn out.

One of the nations` biggest selling tabloids is peddling the notion that Ryan could form part of a Welsh coaching dream team with Brian Flynn with a source, supposedly from the FAW, remarking

"It is no secret that the fans want Ryan and he would certainly lift the players."

"We are exploring the options and there is no need for us to rush into an appointment."


But time could soon be of the essence with the European Championship qualifying campaign not having started that well.

Turning the pages of another of the nations` biggest selling tabloids, we find that it`s peddling the story that Ryan joining the Welsh coaching staff is a bit of a non-starter.

Eric Harrison, who has worked with Giggs at youth team level and who was also part of Mark Hughes Welsh regime, has poured cold water on the idea by commenting, when asked by the tabloid,

"Ryan couldn`t be playing for Manchester United at the weekend and be wondering and worrying about how the Welsh players are doing."

"He is a Welshman and very, very passionate about his country, believe me. But he is also playing as well as he always has for United, so it is a real dilemma."

"I know he still wants to play for a couple of more seasons and win more trophies. He is still hungry enough, fit enough and good enough. To give that up will be incredibly hard for him."


Our view is that Ryan will one day become involved on the international scene, with Wales, but that this opportunity has probably come a couple of years too soon, next time around perhaps!
