Ryan Giggs EPL return
Noise keeps building that Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is poised to return to the Premier League.
Last seen as the assistant coach in Louis van Gaal’s dugout, Giggs left Old Trafford in the summer after the club opted to appoint Jose Mourinho as their new boss.
Giggs has previously managed Man United for just a handful of games following the departure of David Moyes, however it’s beginning to feel increasingly likely he’ll become the new Swansea boss.
Updates: Giggs to Swansea
The Mirror claimed on Sunday that Francesco Guidolin will be sacked from Swansea if they lose to Liverpool next weekend in the Premier League. Moreover, they tipped Giggs to be Guidolin’s replacement.
That’s echoed in the papers on Monday, starting with the Sun, who report:
Talks have already taken place with Swans supremo Huw Jenkins and Cardiff born Giggs, the former United star will meet with new US owners imminently about taking over from Francesco Guidolin and how he will look to steer the club away from a potential relegation scrap.
The Times also support claims that Giggs has already spoken to the Swans about becoming their new boss:
Ryan Giggs held talks with Swansea City on Wednesday and such has been the disappointing start to the campaign by the club that Francesco Guidolin’s position looked to be exceptionally fragile before his team hosted Manchester City.
Swansea’s new American owners will be reluctant to dismiss Guidolin if the fans and players are prepared to be patient, and if the team can test Liverpool to the same extent on Saturday then he may survive the international break.
