The 39-year-old is relishing the new role.
Since being appointed player/coach by new Manchester United manager David Moyes, Ryan Giggs has expressed the excitement the veteran has for his new role.
“I am excited about it personally and it has worked well so far,” Giggs was quoted in the Metro.
“Crazy, aren’t I? I’m enjoying it just as much as I did 20 years ago. It’s as simple as that. Every year is a bonus to me.
“Even though I have been playing for 20-odd years, I am seeing the other side of it; how you prepare for games.
“Some things I knew, others I didn’t. It has been a real education.”
The 39-year-old is currently with the United team on their tour of east Asia, having signed a one-year extension with the club last season, before then agreeing to couple coaching with the role.
Giggs is the most highly decorated footballer in British history, with a career at Old Trafford that stretches over two decades and has seen the Welshman win 13 Premier League titles, four FA Cups victories and two Champions League triumphs.
Impressively the former Wales international has made 849 first team appearances for the club since a debut in 1990, scoring 154 goals and setting up a further 148.
Now the midfielder has given the biggest indication yet that management lies in wait for the Red Devils legend, having been taking his coaching badges for the past few years.
Giggs will be joined by ex-United team mate Phil Neville in Moyes’ backroom staff, as well as Everton coaches Steve Round, Chris Woods and Jimmy Lumsden – who have joined the Scot at the Theatre of Dreams.
