Giggs to leave United - reports

Welshman ends 29-year association

Ryan Giggs is to leave Manchester United, bringing to an end a 29-year association with the club.

The Welshman has rejected the offer of a reduced coaching role under new manager Jose Mourinho, and will bring the curtain down on a 29-year career at Old Trafford in the next few days, after agreeing a settlement for the final year of his contract.

Giggs made a club-record 963 appearances for United, winning two Champions Leagues, 13 Premier League titles and the FA Cup four times.

Giggs, who was appointed as David Moyes' assistant manager in May 2013 and continued the role under Moyes' successor Louis van Gaal, was offered a bridging coaching role between the senior squad and academy following talks with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

And, after mulling over the offer while on holiday in Dubai, Giggs opted to leave the club he first joined as a 14-year-old in 1987.
