Hull boss Bruce believes Giggs will always have a role at Man Utd

Hull manager Steve Bruce believes there will always be a place at Man Utd for interim manager Ryan Giggs, even if Louis van Gaal is appointed as the club’s new manager in the summer, according to BBC Sport.

Giggs admitted last week that Man Utd’s clash with Hull at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening may be his final chance to feature in a game the home of the Red Devils as a player, having first done so in 1991.


The Welshman has enjoyed an uninterrupted spell with the club since then, and took over the reins as manager following David Moyes’ dismissal in April. Netherlands coach van Gaal is the red-hot favourite to take the hotseat at the Theatre of Dreams in the summer.


It is believed Giggs would consider one more season as a player if the new manager has the desire to renew his contract, which expires in July, but refuted claims he could play for another club in his final season, implying that should the new boss not opt to renew the current deal, Giggs’ playing days could come to an end.


Bruce takes his Tigers back to Old Trafford on Tuesday – he himself won Premier League titles during his stint as a Man Utd player and captain – and he believes his former colleague will always have a role at the club.


“If it is Van Gaal he'll have his own opinions but there's always going to be a place for Ryan,” said Bruce.


“I'm sure they'll find a space for him somewhere. He will be treated properly, I'm convinced of that. I don't think he'll leave.”


Bruce also took the opportunity to endorse Giggs’ management potential, encouraging the interim player-manager, who turned 40 in November, to pursue that avenue if it is something he wishes to do.


"I think the way he handled his first press conference proved to me that he can be as good as he wants to be. To have the career he's had, you need determination and desire. If he wants to do it, make no mistake, he'll be a success,” concluded the former central defender.


Giggs has been in charge for two United games thus far, with his managerial record getting off to a dream start when the Red Devils trumped struggling Norwich 4-0 at Carrow Road, before suffering a setback as the Reds lost 0-1 at home to Sunderland on Saturday.


The game against Hull on Tuesday will be followed by a trip to Southampton in the final game of the season.
