Swansea City Pull a Shock By Approaching Ryan Giggs to be Their New Manager

Swansea City Pull a Shock By Approaching Ryan Giggs to be Their New Manager

Garry Monk was sacked by Swansea City on Wednesday following a poor run in the Premier League, after a 22-month spell in charge.

The Swans ended Monk’s 10-year association with the Welsh club, in spite of last season’s 8th place finish – their highest ever in the top flight.

And as they hover just one point above the relegation zone, you can only imagine Monk’s surprise when he picks up Friday’s newspapers and sees Ryan Giggs’s name linked with his old job.

But that’s the news he’ll be faced with, with chairman Huw Jenkins springing a surprise by making an approach for the Cardiff-born Manchester United assistant manager, according to The Independent.

According to the report, Jenkins is keen to speak with Giggs, who is widely perceived – even by Louis van Gaal – to be Man Utd’s manager in waiting.

The likes of Avram Grant, David Moyes and former Liberty Stadium boss Brendan Rodgers have already been mentioned in connection with the post, but the Welsh side are believed to have placed the man capped 64 times by Wales.

Would Giggs really depart the only club he’s ever worked for to manage Swansea? Should he? Let us know in the comments section below…
