ESPN FC reports that Ryan Giggs has been offered a job of assistant manager for Manchester United next season.

There are no official reports but it's widely speculated that Louis Van Gaal will be Manchester United's manager next season. In past history, Van Gaal has kept people close to the club under him and Ryan Giggs would fit that bill. Giggs is likely going to retire from playing this summer and an assistant job under Van Gaal would be a great way for him to start his coaching career. 40 year old Giggs has made 963 appearances for United, an extremely impressive achievement.

Wasting no time, Manchester United appear set to name Dutch National Team Manager Louis van Gaal to replace David Moyes after the World Cup.

With Ryan Giggs set to manage the first team for the remaining three matches of this Premier League season, Manchester United have moved on quickly in finding their permanent replacement for the former Everton manager. In Louis van Gaal, United have someone who knows how to handle the responsibility of managing under a big spotlight. With previous league title-winning stints Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and Ajax, a Champions League final at Bayern and a Champions League title at Ajax in 1995 his resume is a fit for the job of replacing a legend like Sir Alex Ferguson. With a year of diminished expectations after the Moyes disaster, van Gaal is stepping in at the perfect time to be viewed as a savior. Up next, who will the new manager be targeting in the transfer market?

Ryan Giggs started Manchester United's mid-week Champions League tilt with Bayern Munich but only made it 45 minutes and is unlikely to be available against Newcastle this weekend.

Ryan Giggs shouldn't be starting for Manchester United under any but the most dire circumstances at this point in his career. Elder statesman, example to the young players, strong presence in the dressing room, and occasional late-match substitute are the roles he is best suited for at this point. Why David Moyes started him on Tuesday is a bit of a mystery. That mystery is unlikely to be repeated this weekend as Giggs is struggling with a groin injury.

Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand have been recalled to David Moyes' starting line-up as the Red Devils look to avoid further embarrassment and overturn Olympiokos' 2-0 first leg lead.

David Moyes has welcomed two old heads back to the Manchester United starting line-up as the Red Devils look to progress in Champions League action at Old Trafford. Giggs has been marginalized in recent weeks and months as United have struggled while Ferdinand has been absent due to a combination of declining skills and injury issues. United will have to hope that the two players can help save them the blushes associated with going out so early to a decidedly mediocre opponent.
