Ryan Giggs Reveals Why He Had To Leave Manchester United
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has finally revealed why he felt had to leave the Old Trafford club.
The former Wales international spent two seasons working under Louis van Gaal as an assistant coach at the English club, and was keen to stay on a further year, but left the club when the Dutchman was sacked.
Giggs has now explained why he did not stay on and work under Jose Mourinho.
"There was no offer from Jose Mourinho. No offer. It was my choice to go," Giggs told MEN Sport.
"As soon as Louis was going, I had made my decision to go.
"I had done two years and I wanted to do three years under Louis. It didn't happen. That was my plan to do my three years and see what happened after that.
"Unfortunately, that was cut short. It happens. That's football. But I didn't really feel I could go on at the club in any other capacity apart from the manager."
Giggs made 893 appearances for the Old Trafford club, scoring 155 goals and assisting 158 further strikes in all competitions.
