Man Utd icon the new favourite for Nottingham Forest job

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is now the odds on favourite to be the new Nottingham Forest manager. Gianfranco Zola was backed into odds on a few days ago. Ex-Olympiakos coach Michel was another to be in a similar situation.

Nevertheless, Fawaz Al Hasawi potentially could be about to appoint Giggs as the new City Ground boss. The 42-year-old remains on the staff at Old Trafford for now, but is expected to leave this summer. If Giggs were to be appointed, he would become the first Welsh manager of the two-time FA Cup winners.

Jose Mourinho wants him to remain at the club, but the Welshman is keen to step into club management himself. The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager is keen on introducing his usual trusted staff with the Premier League giants.

Giggs played well over 600 times for the Red Devils, winning Premier League and Champions League medals amongst many others. Since retiring from playing, he has made the step into the dugout on the coaching staff. He has worked alongside David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, whilst also enjoying a stint as caretaker himself.

The Championship club are on the lookout for a new manager. Fans have become increasingly frustrated at the lack of an appointment already. Dougie Freedman was sacked in March, with Paul Williams taking over until the end of the season. Last season was a frustrating one for the club. Injuries certainly played their part, but the team ultimately lacked consistency as well. Eventually, they ended the season in 16th position.

It remains to be seen if there is any substance to the amount of money for Giggs. He would surely jump at the chance to manage the two-time European Cup winners. It would be a very difficult first managerial job. At the same time though, it could be one that is too good for Giggs to turn down.
