Giggs to take up coaching role

Manchester United have confirmed that Ryan Giggs is to take up a player-coaching role next season.

It was already established Phil Neville is to become a member of Moyes' backroom team but now Giggs will work alongside his former team-mate, having already agreed a one-year contract extension last term.

"It's a great privilege to be appointed a player coach. I hope I will be able to bring my experience to bear, having been both a player and part of the Manchester United family for so long," said Giggs.

Often linked with the United manager's job at some point in the future, Giggs has been taking his coaching badges and is due to attain the UEFA Pro Licence next summer.

"It's no secret that I have been taking my qualifications and I see this as the first step in my future career," said Giggs.

"I'm really looking forward to working alongside David and the team."

Having confirmed Steve Round, Chris Woods and Jimmy Lumsden were following him from Everton, concern had been expressed about the lack of United experience in David Moyes' backroom team following his appointment as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor.

Neville's arrival at the Aon Training Complex on Thursday morning went some way to allaying those concerns.

However, the decision to appoint Giggs is a masterstroke. The Welshman won a record 13th Premier League title last term and was part in all but the first two of Ferguson's major triumphs.

He will be an invaluable aid to Moyes as he learns the ropes, with the Scot due to face the media alongside skipper Nemanja Vidic on Friday afternoon.
