Ryan Giggs on the cusp of landing first job in management with Walesby Jack Kitson / 12 January 2018, 13:05Tweet
Ryan Giggs’ lengthy wait for a job in the chaotic world of football management could finally be over after it was revealed that the rookie boss was interviewed for the Wales vacancy.
This is not a drill.
The Welshman has suffered more rejections than Jay from the Inbetweeners on a night out, but at long last he may be on the cusp of bagging himself a job.
So far Giggs has only four caretaker matches at Man Utd on his CV, and that was way back at the end of the 2013/14 season following the sacking of David Moyes.
He’s since been linked with a plethora of posts - too many to name - from the Premier League down to League Two, however he could now make his managerial debut in the international arena.
Wales were left managerless in November after Chris Coleman surprisingly left his position in order to take charge of Championship strugglers Sunderland.
The Welsh were left deflated by Coleman’s decision, afterall he was responsible for one of the most memorable moments in the country’s history - their historic run through to the Euro 2016 semi-finals.
The likes of Craig Bellamy, Mark Hughes, Carl Robinson and Tony Pulis have all been put forward as possible replacements, but it’s Giggs who now leads the way at the top of the betting market at 1/3, after news broke of his interview.
Wales have previously placed their trust in upcoming managers Mark Hughes and Gary Speed, who were 36 and 41 respectively when they were appointed, and now providing the interview went well the 44-year-old Giggs should be installed at the helm in time for Wales’ next game against China in March.
