Giggs: I’m happy out of football, no Swansea job

Daniel Storey

Ryan Giggs says that he is not going to be the next manager of Swansea City.

In an interview with Talksport, Giggs says that he is happy with life out of the game and is concentrating on media commitments.

Giggs had been linked with the Swansea City job, with Francesco Guidolin reportedly close to leaving the club.

Yet Giggs says there has been no contact from Swansea, and that he is only looking to coach further down the line.

“There has been no approach from Swansea City but, in any case, there is a manager in place at the club,” Giggs said.

“I’m happy with life outside of the game right now and enjoying media work.

“At some stage, further down the line, it’s no secret I’d like to get back into football as a coach – but that’s for later, not now.”

Only on Friday morning, Ian Herbert wrote in the Independent that:

‘The prospect of Ryan Giggs launching his managerial career in the top flight at Swansea City is becoming increasingly likely with the 42-year-old open to the role and the club’s American shareholders thought to be ready to install him if manager Francesco Guidolin’s bad run continues.’
