2 Man United legends differ on their future in coaching

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has confirmed he would be interested in the managerial vacancies at Leicester and Everton.

Everton sacked Ronald Koeman on Monday after a 5-2 defeat to Arsenal left them in the relegation places, while Leicester parted company with Craig Shakespeare six days earlier, when the Foxes had also slipped into the Premier League’s bottom three.

Giggs, who is a co-owner of Salford City, has been open to the opportunity to move into management since leaving his position as Manchester United assistant manager following Jose Mourinho’s arrival.

Speaking in the latest Super 6 Class of ’92 Diary, Giggs said: “I think you look at those two teams, Leicester being champions two seasons ago, Everton being a fantastic club with a fantastic history, for me these are clubs I would be interested in.

“However, there are a lot of coaches out there who would be interested in those positions.

“I’ve said all along that I'd be open to clubs which share the ambitions of myself. I want to improve clubs and improve players, to enjoy working for them and for players to enjoy the challenge.

“There are clubs in the Premier League which would be good jobs but also in the Championship and League One. It’s more about the philosophy for me than the stature of the club.”

Asked whether he was surprised to see two vacancies come up so early in the season, Giggs added: “I don’t think you’re surprised in this climate that clubs change managers so quickly.

“Obviously Everton spent a lot of money while Leicester’s owners’ expectations are higher after what they achieved.”

While his ex teammate is longing for the dugout, another Manchester United legend Gary Neville has a tough experience in coaching and doesn’t want to go down that path again.

Neville admits he is a “million miles away” from going back into management following his roles with Valencia and England.

The former Manchester United captain was dismissed by Valencia last year after four months in charge, while he left his position as England’s assistant manager after their untimely exit to Iceland at Euro 2016.

And Neville, who will feature in Sky Sports’ coverage of Liverpool’s trip to Tottenham this afternoon – live on Sky Sports Premier League – says he has no regrets in taking the Valencia job, but has no intentions of returning to coaching in the near future.

“It’ll never happen,” Neville told the Daily Mail. “I’m a million miles away. I suppose never is a strong word because in 10 years you might wake up and say: ‘I want to coach’. I love football and the camaraderie but I don’t want to be in that environment anymore.

“Up until 15 months ago I was coach of England and 19 months ago I was coach of Valencia, so it would be impossible to say at that stage that I'm never going to be a coach, but I had turned down two or three Premier League jobs, I turned down two Championship jobs and I wasn’t going to go into coaching.

“I did it because it was my business partner and I thought that the opportunity for an Englishman to manage one of the top four or five clubs in Spain was never going to happen again.

“It was an unbelievable opportunity and it didn't go as well as I wanted it to, but I enjoyed every minute and it taught me a lot and things I will apply to my business life. I don't regret going to Spain.”

Neville is also occupied by numerous ventures with his Class of ’92 teammates.

Along with Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and brother Phil, he is a co-owner of Salford City, while they have also set up University Academy 92, which will focus on providing students support while studying degrees in business and sport.

“I was moving my career to these projects,” Neville added. “I’m stimulated every day to be the best I can be in business and it will either be a failure or success in the next 15 years but that’s what I want to be.”
