One of the great footballers of the past 20 years has today hung up his boots.
In the wake of the news that Louis van Gaal has penned a three year deal with Man United, Ryan Giggs has officially brought the curtain down on his playing days to becoming his assistant.
Ryan Giggs said: “I am thrilled to have the chance to serve as assistant manager. Louis van Gaal is a world-class coach and I know I will learn a lot about coaching from being able to observe and contribute at such close quarters.
“Manchester United has been a huge part of my life and I’m delighted to be able to continue that relationship in such a key role.”
