Ryan Giggs might have been an icon as a Manchester United player ever since he stepped foot on the football pitch, but his managerial career seems to be taking a start slower than he would have expected.
The former winger has been linked to every coaching job in the league since he left Old Trafford, but is yet to debut as the manager of a Premier League side in his career.
This season saw him coming close to doing that with Swansea, who were managerless mid season, but after confirming that he met with the club’s representatives, but their expectations and his did not match, Giggs was left still looking for that elusive job.
However, the day might finally be approaching for Giggs, as Premier League side Middlesbrough seem to be interested in bringing the experienced Welshman to the club, reports The Sun.
The team is currently being led by caretaker manager Steve Agnew, who replaced Aitor Karanka mid-season, but the move seems to have failed, as they look destined for relegation this time around with only 4 games to play and being 6 points off the 17th placed side.
Despite having full trust of the club owners, Agnew might be facing a tough time keeping his job once the drop is confirmed, and among the new names that could replace him, Ryan Giggs stands out as a hugely possible option.
Giggsy was in-charge of United for four games when David Moyes was sacked by the Red Devils, and then learned a few precious things in his time as the assistant manager under Louis Van Gaal for a span of two years.
Middlesbrough and the championship might not be the ideal beginning Giggs would have preferred, but a start has to be made, and this might just be it.
