Giggs 'not thinking about Man Utd future'
Interim Manchester United manager Ryan Giggs has insisted his focus is on the final Premier League games of the season and not his future, the Daily Telegraph has reported.
Giggs stepped in when David Moyes was sacked in late April will remain in charge for United’s last three games of the season, having started his tenure with a 4-0 win over Norwich City last weekend.
Louis van Gaal is expected to be appointed as the new full-time manager once he has taken the Netherlands to the World Cup but Giggs’ next step isn’t clear. The former Wales international could be part of van Gaal’s backroom staff, or he could remain as a player.
But Giggs has said he isn’t thinking that far ahead as he has enough on his plate as the caretaker boss. “The way I’m thinking is I’m enjoying it and my concentration is on tomorrow and then the remaining two games,” Giggs said at a Press conference to preview United’s game against Sunderland on Saturday.
“I’ve got a decision to make to decide whether or not I want to continue playing so there is no point thinking do I want to be an assistant or a manager somewhere else.
“There are so many things to think about. I’m just concentrating on what I’m doing at the moment because it’s taking up a lot of my time. My concentration isn’t on next season, it’s on this season.”
Giggs has made 21 appearances as a player for United this season and is currently the only player in Premier League history to score in every season of the competition. He has yet to find the target this season, however.
