Rumours are flying that football legend Ryan Giggs, 40, is heading for a Manchester United exit after a fall-out with manager David Moyes.
Reportedly, Welshman Giggs, who has been used on the pitch sparingly this season, is not pleased with the way he’s being treated by Moyes and often does not see eye to eye with the manager over his approach.
Reports indicate that Giggs, who is player-coach, believes he has been under-used, especially when the club have been up against particularly strong opponents.
Moyes promoted Giggs on to his coaching staff after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson as manager but sources indicate that there have been some heated exchanges between the pair over training methods and tactics.
Moyes is already expected to make a number of changes soon, with high-price purchases during the transfer window expected.
But the manager is also allegedly going to take stock of his backroom staff in the summer, with expectations being that he will make some alterations.
Some staunch MUFC fans have called for Moyes to be dismissed and replaced by Giggs until the end of the season.
Giggs, who is said to be reconsidering his Old Trafford future once the season ends, has hit back at claims of a fall-out though, saying:
“The relationship is good. As a player you want to play all the time. I know, as I have done for the last five or six years, that I’m not going to play every game.
“I’ll probably play every two or three weeks to probably get the best out of me. The last time I played was probably the first time in six or seven weeks, but we’ve got a lot of players to choose from.
“But I showed with the performance against Olympiakos, I’m always ready to play, and that’s what you’ve got to do, not sulk when you’re not playing.
“There’s no problem with the manager, obviously a lot has been said though.”
Giggs’ 12-month contract ends this summer, and if rumours are true, this could be his last European campaign.
The player said: “I don’t know. I am just trying to enjoy this season and then at the end I will take stock and see what I want to do. I am enjoying my football as much as ever, I feel fit and then at the end of the season, I will see what I want to do.”
