Ryan Giggs takes active interest in potential return to management

Ryan Giggs is keen on becoming Salford City’s next manager in what would see the former Manchester United midfielder return to football.

Giggs, 49, has been out of work since leaving the Wales job but, according to The Sun, he is taking an active interest in the League Two club he part-owns.

It is believed Giggs could be brought back into management if Neil Wood doesn’t get Salford into contention for the play-offs.

The decision to appoint Giggs – if it gets to that stage – would not only be made by the Welshman himself, but also Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, David Beckham and Singaporean businessman Peter Lim.

As things stand in League Two, Salford sit 19th after two wins, one draw and five defeats from their opening eight games.

You can see why the pressure is mounting on Wood, but hopefully he gets time to turn things around. He was a highly thought of coach during his time in United’s academy.

However, Giggs faced a retrial in July over domestic violence allegations on charges of causing actual bodily harm to his ex-girlfriend, Kate Greville, along with controlling and coercive behaviour. The case was abandoned after the charges were withdrawn by the CPS.

It was only a matter of time before we heard of a return to football in some capacity.
