Giggs ready to leave United

Ryan Giggs is ready to end his long association with Manchester United following Jose Mourinho's appointment as manager.

Giggs has spent 29 years at the club but he is expected to leave Old Trafford after taking some time to consider his future.

Having joined the club as a 14-year-old, Giggs went on to become one of United's greatest ever players, making 963 appearances and scoring 168 goals.

He was appointed caretaker manager for the final games of the 2013-14 season following the David Moyes' sacking and subsequently announced his retirement from playing to take up the position as Louis Van Gaal's assistant, a position he has held for the last two years.

Some believe the Welshman should have succeeded Van Gaal as manager but the club's hierarchy opted to bring in Mourinho and the 42-year-old faces the prospect of being demoted with the new manager set to bring in his regular assistant Rui Faria.

Mouriho is understood to have offered Giggs a different role on the coaching staff, but the Welshman is unhappy at his demotion and is ready to cut ties with the club and seek a managerial appointment elsewhere.
