Ryan Giggs Rules Himself Out of Swansea Running by Highlighting Their Issues

Ryan Giggs Rules Himself Out of Swansea Running by Highlighting Their Issues

Swansea fans should be worried reading Ryan Giggs’ comments about why he’s not interested in becoming their new manager.

The Welshman has been out of work since leaving his role as Louis van Gaal’s assistant manager at Manchester United in 2016.

And he’s so far not been able to get back into management despite being regularly linked with a number of clubs.

Swansea is the latest, with last night’s sacking of Paul Clement leading to speculation that the English Premier League outfit might be interested in making him their new boss.

Giggs appeared at a Class of ’92 event this morning and Sky Sports made sure to ask him about the talk.

But the United legend ruled himself out of the running – and his answer highlights what could be an issue for other managers who may be on the club’s radar.

For Giggs, they went for Bob Bradley back in 2016 despite speaking to him and the offer is less attractive now that they’ve lost some key players over the last year.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Giggs, per mirror.co.uk, said: “No, I’ve already spoken to them before, last time before they appointed Bob Bradley.

“Over the years, it has been a well run club but it is tough now and it gets tougher every year.

“They lost good players in the summer, Sigurdsson and Llorente, and haven’t replaced them. That is the problem.”

Giggs would be a risk as an appointment anyway. Swansea are rock bottom of the English Premier League, with 12 points from 18 games so far this campaign.

So you’d expect they’ll go for an experienced replacement to help them avoid the drop, with Tony Pulis mentioned as a possible option.
