Giggs relishing Manchester United player-coach role

Ryan Giggs feels that he is successfully making the transition from player to coach under David Moyes at Manchester United.

Moyes promoted the midfielder – who turns 40 in November – to player-coach when he succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson in May, with former Red Devils defender Phil Neville also returning to Old Trafford to form part of the the club's backroom staff.

Giggs has played in three of United's seven Premier League games this term as his illustrious playing career enters what could be its final season before he hangs up his boots, and he is relishing his new responsibilities amid speculation that he could be one of the contenders for the Wales job as Chris Coleman awaits a decision on his future.

"I am enjoying my coaching role at Manchester United - it has been great," Giggs, capped 64 times for Wales and the holder of United's all-time appearance record, told the Manchester Evening News. "It hasn't yet got to the point when I go into the dressing room and everything falls quiet, but education is the next step in my career and I'm enjoying it. I am enjoying working with the new manager.

"Personally, I would prefer better results but we are only seven or eight games into the season."
