After the saddening death of Wales manager Gary Speed, there seems to be much speculation about the next permanent manager, and most of the talk seems to be about Ryan Giggs. Now 38, Giggs has always stated that a management career after his playing day are over is of much interest to him.
It was widely tipped that Ryan Giggs would be the successor after John Toshack’s departure, but the possibility was blocked at the time by Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson.
The Football Association of Wales have made it clear that the post will not be filled until at least the new year, but hope to have a management team in place in time for an international friendly on February 29th, yet to be arranged.
Gary Speed had just begun to change the fortunes of the Welsh squad, building team unity and performances, and the Welsh Football Association need to be certain they have the right man for the job in order to build on Speed’s foundations.
Ryan Giggs would almost certainly fit the bill. Winning everything at club level and with a deep knowledge of the game, he would undoubtedly be the choice of the current Welsh squad.
