Ryan Giggs in no rush to leave Man United to become a manager
Ryan Giggs has no immediate plans to turn his hand to management, and says he is loving life as Louis van Gaal's assistant at Manchester United.
The 41-year-old Welshman became Van Gaal's second in command when United unveiled their new management team last summer.
But while former teammate Paul Scholes said last week that Giggs might want to leave Old Trafford to take charge of a team, United's most decorated player has denied that.
"I don't think in the next year or so, there is no rush," he told The Sun. "As far as I am concerned I am really happy where I am and have no plans on going anywhere else. I am really enjoying it."
Van Gaal insisted last week that there has been no rift between himself and Giggs after the pair produced very different reactions to Wednesday's victory at Newcastle.
And Giggs, who has himself rejected any suggestions they do not get on, said he is enjoying his duties analysing United's opponents for Van Gaal.
"I'm loving it," he added. "The Premier League is different. The manager has said when you go to Spain or Germany they play similar football but in this country you have different styles.
"You have good footballing teams or more direct teams and also it is a lot quicker.
"That is my job, to give him the background on teams we are playing. And, in turn, I am learning every day things you need to be a coach.
"It is a big responsibility. I did it preseason. The manager said, 'I want you to do this and see how you go.' There was no promises and if I had been rubbish I think he would have said, 'No, leave it for a bit and do something else.' But I did OK.
"Being manager for those four games at the end of last season certainly helped me in that respect, in terms of talking to the group.
"So I felt a lot more comfortable than perhaps I would have."
