Swansea City are interested in speaking to Manchester United assistant Ryan Giggs over their vacant managerial position, according to the Independent.
The Welsh club sacked Garry Monk earlier this week and are believed to be keen on assessing the 42-year old’s progress as an assistant to Louis van Gaal.
The former Red Devils legend has been in the role ever since van Gaal took over from David Moyes, having already taken charge of the senior team for four games after the Scots’ dismissal.
Widely regarded to be on the front runners for the position on a senior basis once the Dutchman departs, it in unknown whether Swans chairman Huw Jenkins will offer his compatriot the job.
However, he does appear to fit the bill of a manager at the Liberty Stadium; an emerging coach with a penchant for attacking football.
The Liberty Stadium outfit are said to eager to explore all possible avenues before coming to a decision about their next boss.
Former Bayern Munich and Barcelona boss van Gaal revealed he will need to speak to his assistant about the role in the coming days.
‘First I have to speak to Ryan Giggs by himself if it’s true’, he stated at his pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow’s game with Bournemouth.
‘I’m sorry. I cannot speak about the ‘’if’’. The ‘’if’’ situations’, added the 64-year old.
Gus Poyet, currently in charge of AEK Athens, is currently the favourite to land the job having almost been appointed in 2010 before Brendan Rodgers.
