Giggs eyes management role

Ryan Giggs has set his sights on taking over the Manchester United hot-seat from Sir Alex Ferguson when he hangs up his boots.
 
The 36-year-old has won every major club honour on offer in his 20 years and now says he would like to manage the Old Trafford club or take on international management with Wales when he calls time on his illustrious playing career.
 
Giggs has already started taking his coaching badges and, if successful, he will follow former United team-mates, including Steve Bruce, Mark Hughes, Roy Keane and Bryan Robson into management.
 
He told the News of the World: "My aim would be to manage either Manchester United or Wales."
 
He continued: "I don't think I'll know whether I'll cope with the aggravation until I've finished playing and say, 'what do I do now?'
 
"Football is such a massive part of my life and to just stop in your late thirties and do nothing is tough.
 
"Even though there is so much stress involved, I think a lot of players become managers and really enjoy it.
 
"I think Roy Keane really enjoys it."
