Miami – Former English football star David Beckham said Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs has what it takes to become manager of the Red Devils.
Speaking in a press conference on Tuesday, the English legend said he would like to see the Welsh player who he calls “Giggsy” become the boss one day.
“I hope at some point that Giggsy does take over…it’d be amazing for the fans to have him,” he said.
The highly-acclaimed former captain said Giggs has the traits that are seen in “top managers” and great knowledge about the club.
“He’s determined and when you have someone like that in club like this, someone that’s from this part of the world and knows so much about this club…it’s so embedded into him. Having someone like that…is something that means so much to fans,” stressed Beckham smiling.
Ryan Giggs, 41, joined Manchester United in 1987 and made his professional debut in 1991. After 23 years in first team he was appointed interim player-manager and is currently Louis Van Gaal’s assistant manager.
The Welsh star is tipped to be promoted and become Van Gaal’s replacement. He’s won the favor of his peers such as former Red Devils Rio Ferdinand who considers him the best option to coach at Old Trafford.
Giggs is the most decorated player in football history with 672 appearances with United.
