The wait goes on for Ryan Giggs’ first senior managerial role. The Manchester United legend has been ruled out of the running for the vacant Swansea manager’s job, the BBC report. This is despite him being one of the favourites to replace Bob Bradley when the American coach was sacked on Tuesday.
Giggs was also a favourite to replace Francesco Guidolin in the Autumn before Bradley was appointed. The American won only two of his 11 games in charge.
In truth, Giggs might have dodged a bullet here. Swansea are 19th in the Premier League and face a battle to stay up. Giggs has coaching experience from his time as assistant to David Moyes and Louis van Gaal respectively but this would have been a baptism of fire. It could have killed his management career before it started.
Bayern Munich assistant boss Paul Clement and former Birmingham gaffer Gary Rowett are linked with the job. Swansea’s temporary coach, Alan Curtis, believes that the club’s next boss should be British and know the league.
If Giggs takes over at Swansea the three managers in the relegation zone will be Giggs, David Moyes and Mike Phelan. Sir Alex's dream team.— Colin Millar (@Millar_Colin) December 27, 2016
