Giggs on working with ‘Scholesy’: ‘Nothing concrete’

Ryan Giggs has responded to claims that he will offer Paul Scholes a position in the Wales national team set-up.

Giggs was appointed Wales manager earlier this month on a four-year contract.

The Manchester United legend is looking to assemble his backroom staff as quickly as possible, with Wales having discovered their UEFA Nations League fate on Wednesday.

Giggs worked briefly with Scholes during his four-game run as United’s interim manager in 2014, and could link up with his former teammate again.

“I speak to Scholesy all the time,” said Giggs. “I saw him Saturday at Salford City – but there are no names who are concrete.

“I am talking to lots of people and I do not want to mention individuals. I obviously know Scholesy really well. We will see what happens.

“It is a balance. A balance about getting experience, fresh ideas – someone who can improve the Welsh team.

“It is my first job, so if you have someone with experience, it is a bonus.

“We are getting there. Nothing concrete at the moment – only Tony Roberts as goalkeeper coach who will carry on, someone I know well from my playing career with Wales.”
