Man United boss Louis Van Gaal has seemingly named his successor after revealing that Ryan Giggs is in line to replace him.
The Dutchman is expected to continue in his post until the end of next season when his contract expires, and he has previously suggested that he will not go on any further.
As a result, the Red Devils will have to begin the process of finding a replacement sooner rather than later in order to ensure that there is a smooth transition and Van Gaal believes that Giggs is the man to take over.
According to The Times (subscription required), the United boss has revealed that he expects the Welshman to succeed him at Old Trafford.
Giggs has already had a temporary spell as interim manager at the club after David Moyes was sacked, while he has continued to learn under Van Gaal over the last year or so.
Given that he would have also benefited from Sir Alex Ferguson’s influence on him during their time together at the club, the former winger would seemingly be a sensible as well as popular choice for the job.
