Ryan Giggs will hold talks with Man Utd executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and manager-elect Louis van Gaal today regarding his future role at the club. It is expected that the 40-year-old midfielder will be offered a role as coaching staff under the new regime.

Van Gaal is expected to be confirmed as United manager on Thursday, in an attempt to quell the uncertainty that has surrounded the team in the past month. The Dutch-man is understood to have discussed player departures and transfer targets.


Giggs enjoyed a decent 4-game spell as interim manager of United at the tail end of an extremely turbulent season, presiding over two wins a draw and a loss. He has expressed a will to pursue a career in management and is expected to take a senior position in van Gaal's backroom staff, however, the anticipated departures of Phil Neville and Nicky Butt, combined with uncertainty over Paul Scholes' role at the club could sway his decision.

Roy Keane weighed in during an interview with Talksport; suggesting his former team-mate would be wise to remain at the club and learn from the highly experienced Van Gaal.

Ryan did well in the four games he was in charge. He got two victories, a draw and a defeat, it was a mixed bag. I'm sure he's enjoyed the experience.

He's said he wants to become a manager, but I certainly think it was way too early for him to get the Man United job. If he's kept on under Van Gaal, he'll only learn more.

Regarding his playing future, the winger is still undecided.
