Ryan Giggs wants to manage Wales when United career is over

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs wants to manage Wales.
 
Midfield maestro Giggs joined David Moyes’ new-look back-room staff over the summer.
 
And the 39-year-old player/coach has opened the door to one day taking over as Dragons boss.
 
Asked if Giggs would like to manage Wales in the future beyond current chief Chris Coleman, he replied: 'If you’ve played for your country and then you go into management then yes, of course.
 
'It’s like when you are a player starting out. You want to play for the team you supported or you’re at. I did that. You want to play for my country. I did that. And it’s similar to being a manager.
 
'But I’m no fool. You can’t just walk into a job because you had a career in the game. You have to be deserving of managing your country because it’s a massive honour.'
 
Giggs, who won 64 caps for his country, is currently still part of the first-team squad at Old Trafford and has a rolling one-year contract.
 
Giggs added: 'My near future and concentration is on playing. I want to walk before I run, but I wouldn’t rule anything out.'
