David Beckham has backed former teammate Ryan Giggs to become Manchester United manager in the future.
Giggs took charge of the Red Devils as interim manager in 2014 following the sacking of David Moyes and is currently an assistant under Dutch boss Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford.
After playing alongside Giggs in Manchester United’s golden era, Beckham says he is hopeful the former star winger will be given the job in the future.
“To be a player who has represented one club through his career, that doesn’t happen anymore. For a player to have represented his club and his country the way he has and now,” Beckham is quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News.
“At some point, he will hopefully become United manager in the future.”
Van Gaal’s contract is due to expire at the end of the 2016-17 season, and the Dutchman has already hinted that he may quit the club at the end of his deal to spend more time with his wife.
