Read more Manchester United transfer rumours.
Stalwart Welshman Ryan Giggs has retired from professional football, but will stay at Manchester United as incoming manager Louis van Gaal’s assistant, confirms the Times.
The 40-year-old has made a record total of 963 appearances for the Red Devils, winning 13 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues and four FA Cups.
After making just the 12 Premier League appearances last term, the legendary player has decided to call time on his career, which will no doubt go down as one of the greatest in modern football history.
“I am thrilled to have the chance to serve as assistant manager. Louis van Gaal is a world-class coach,” said Giggs, on his new role under the Dutch boss.
“I know I will learn a lot from being able to observe and contribute at such close quarters.”
