United Icon Ryan Giggs Reported Front-Runner for Swansea City Job

Ryan Giggs wasn’t offered a job, or should I say “a gig” (sorry, that pun was too easy) on Jose Mourinho’s coaching staff that he would have been interested in. As the Mourinho regime commenced, Giggs then made his own personal Brexit from Manchester United after his 29 years of service with the club.

Unfortunately for Giggs, there was no new suitable open job waiting for him anywhere else in the open market. He did have some offers, but the right one didn’t come along.

Perhaps it now has with Swansea City now sacking Bob Bradley? Reports indicate that he would be welcomed, at least by some of the club’s movers and shakers, with the Swans.

According to ESPN FC:

Ryan Giggs has influential support within the Swansea hierarchy as they seek to replace Bob Bradley, with Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins enjoying a good rapport with the Manchester United legend, sources have told ESPN FC.

Giggs, 43, has been installed as the early bookmakers’ favourite to succeed Bradley — who lasted just 85 days and 11 games — at the Liberty Stadium.

And although Giggs was overlooked in favour of Bradley when he was interviewed by Swansea after Francesco Guidolin was dismissed at the start of October, the former Wales captain is prepared to discuss taking over the job for what would be his first full-time Premier League management position.

Giggs has served as an assistant at United under both David Moyes and Louis van Gaal. After Moyes was sacked in April of 2014, he was United’s interim manager for four games. Obviously, the job security at Swansea City is very low now, as they’re fighting to stay up this season. That’s the main reason Bradley was canned- the Swans are in serious relegation danger, residing in 19th place with just 12 points on the season.

The last safety position, currently, belongs to Crystal Palace, who have 16 points.
