Ryan Giggs a surprise target for Championship club


Ryan Giggs is yet to officially leave Manchester United, but the Welsh coach is already being linked with a surprise move to manage Championship club Nottingham Forest.

The Independent report that Forest are considering gambling on the United legend, who is set to leave Old Trafford after almost 30 years at the club following the appointment of Jose Mourinho.

It is unclear why Giggs is having to leave, as some reports suggest he wants to move on in order to further his managerial career, while others believe Mourinho is not comfortable with him because of the power he holds.

Forest have been on the hunt for a new manager since Dougie Friedman was sacked in March and could be willing to offer Giggs his first stint in permanent management.


He briefly took the reins towards the end of the 2013/2014 season when David Moyes was axed, but now that Mourinho has been given the job over him, it’s clear United aren’t going to take a chance on him until he has proven himself elsewhere.

Allowing Giggs the hot seat would have been a huge punt for United, but for Forest, it is less so.

Not only are they in a lower division, their fans will be far less demanding, and will at most be expecting a push for promotion.
