Former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has said that he would be open to a managerial job in League Two, according to a report in the Independent.

The 64-time capped Welsh international made over 650 appearances for the Manchester giants, winning each of the top domestic trophies with the Red Devils, between 1990 and 2014.

Since Louis Van Gaal’s departure from Old Trafford in the summer of 2016, Giggs has been out of the game. However, the 43-year-old has brief managerial experience having held the job at Old Trafford on an interim basis following David Moyes’ departure in April 2014.

Giggs revealed to the Independent that he is willing to manage abroad or even in Sky Bet League Two, but is waiting for a club whose philosophy of the game matches his.

Speaking to the Independent, Giggs said: “I spoke to Swansea last year. That was the only club I did speak to, even though I got linked with everyone, but the same again this year really.

“It’s totally different experience to what I’ve had previously, just relax, not putting yourself under pressure so yeah, nothing has changed really, where if a club wants to talk, then I’ll talk to them. Whether it be Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two, this country, another country, I’ll look at all the options.

“I always maintained that it was not sort of Premier League, I would rather go to a good club lower down, who had the same ambition, same philosophy, rather than go to a Premier League team that are perhaps struggling, fire-fighting or got owners that are famous for sacking after six months.

“I think it’s really important that, when I do decide to go in, that the first job’s right for me.”
