While Manchester United fans are entirely grateful for the rebuilding job Louis van Gaal has completed so far following the mess left by David Moyes, Red Devils supporters know the Dutchman won’t be around forever so today, we’re mulling over just what the future could hold for the men from Old Trafford.
Our Red Devils contingent in the Football Transfer Tavern didn’t read too long ago that van Gaal himself has tipped current assistant and club legend Ryan Giggs to take over his mantle as United boss when retirement comes calling at the end of next season but on the face of it, the proposed appointment of the Welshman would be a gamble.
Having been interim boss for four games at the end of David Moyes’ brief spell in charge of the club, Giggs is now well versed in the goings on of the touchline as opposed to the left wing but whether he could really make a great manager is anyone’s guess right now.
With the club having transformed since Giggs’ playing days with United now one of the forces to be reckoned with again in the transfer market having splashed some lavish fees of late, we wonder just how Giggs would get on with some claiming van Gaal’s approach has irked a few in the dressing room previously.
While everybody in the world would love to appoint Pep Guardiola, nobody is sure just how much longer he intends to remain at Bayern Munich so with other options perhaps needing to be drawn up in the interim for when van Gaal eventually departs, we’re today weighing up the pros of giving assistant boss Giggs a promotion.
