Giggs considering coaching role
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has confirmed he will consider a career in coaching when he retires from playing football.
Giggs, 38, will play for United for at least another season after he signed a one-year extension to his contract in February.
The Welshman's former Red Devils team-mate Gary Neville ruled out a career in management on Saturday, but Giggs appears more open to the possibility.
The midfielder will skipper Great Britain at the 2012 Olympics and he sees the experience as an ideal opportunity to build on his growing skill set.
Giggs told the Daily Mirror: 'Coaching is something I'm looking at more and more. In the middle of last season, I completed my UEFA A Licence, which was good. It's a different side of things, completely different to being a player.
"I want to gather as much knowledge as I can and prepare myself as best as I can, if I do want to go into management or coaching.
"The Olympics is a great platform, it's different being involved in tournament football to league football. I ask as many questions as I can at United and I've been the same here with Great Britain."
