Manchester United’s interim manager Ryan Giggs has yet to declare his future playing intentions, as media speculation suggests that Louis Van Gaal is set to be named the new king of the Old Trafford throne.
RG added at his press conference: “I’ve got a lot to think about, whether to carry on playing. But my concentration is just on now.” #mufc

Manchester United’s most decorated player has yet to decide on his future playing career, instead focusing on the task of leading his team in the final three games of an underwhelming Premier League season. Giggs has amassed an incredible 962 matches for the club since his debut in 1991, contributing 168 goals in the process.
One of his most memorable moments came in the 1999 F.A. Cup Semi-Final replay against Arsenal, slaloming past the opposing defense to score the winning goal.
Giggs is beginning to gain support from not only within Old Trafford but also from former teammates, such as Gary Neville:
“There’s the idea that Ryan hasn’t got experience, but he knows the club. And then there’s the idea that Van Gaal has massive experience, but he doesn’t know the Premier League.”
Giggs’s Manchester United side face Sunderland on Saturday at Old Trafford, as they look to finish a disappointing season with a run of good results and bring back the style of football United fans have expected from their team throughout the years.
The only question that remains for United fans is whether the Stretford End will ever witness the Welsh Wizard’s magic again.
