The Dutchman believes Giggs will succeed him in the dugout.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has backed his current assistant and club legend Ryan Giggs to succeed him in the dugout at Old Trafford.
As the Telegraph reports, during a speech given to fans of the club van Gaal heaps praise on Giggs before declaring the Welshman should be the next Red Devils boss.
The 63-year-old explained at a charity dinner last Thursday that the former midfielder was a great coach and should be the next man in charge at United.
Giggs had a brief spell as No.1 following David Moyes’ sacking at the end of last season, with a 3-1 victory over Hull City a particular highlight.
The 40-year-old was also among the contenders to succeed Moyes before van Gaal was given the job and it looks extremely likely one day the 13-time Premier League champion will emulate his great mentor Sir Alex Ferguson.
