Is Giggs being forced out of United?

ryan-giggs-manchester-united-giggs-olympiacos_3104217Ryan Giggs has denied any rift with David Moyes, but has admitted he could leave the club at the end of the season, after admitting that he’ll have to consider his options when the current campaign comes to an end.

Rumours of Giggs growing increasingly disillusioned with Moyes’ methods and approach to training have been widely reported over the last couple of weeks, with the Welshman so unimpressed by his manager’s tactics and training drills that he has, allegedly, stopped attending coaches meeting as “Moyes doesn’t f*****g listen anyway”.

Giggs has been used very sparely this season, with his start against Olympiakos two weeks ago being his first appearance in 12 games. On the night Giggs was comfortably United’s best player on the pitch, but when asked why he hadn’t selected him more often, Moyes replied that he was planning to phase the veteran out and couldn’t therefore afford to hand him a regular starting spot in the team.

With David Moyes increasingly under pressure after a dismal inaugural campaign at Old Trafford, many Reds have made clear that they’d love to see Giggs in charge – albeit temporarily – should Moyes be relieved of his duties but, ahead of tomorrow’s crucial Champions League quarter final against Bayern Munich, Giggsy has admitted he could instead leave the club at the end of the season.

“I don’t know where that’s come from,” said Giggs when asked if there was a rift between him and Moyes. “Yes, the relationship’s good. Of course you want to play all the time, but there’s obviously no problem with the manager.”

When  asked if he’d like to succeed David Moyes in the Old Trafford dugout, United’s press officer prevented Giggsy from replying, but the United number 11 was clear when asked if this could be his last European campaign.

“I don’t know. At the end of the season I’ll stock and see what I want to do.”

Losing Giggs would be an incredible blow for the team and the club as a whole. The sort of self-inflicted wound United do not need at this moment in time.
