Giggs should carry on playing for Man Utd, say Goal Singapore readers

The 40-year-old interim coach looks to make way for Louis Van Gaal to take over the helm at Manchester United, but his future with the club remains uncertain

Ryan Giggs’s cameo appearance in the 3-1 win against Hull City last weekend showed that the Welshman still has what it takes to continue playing at the top level with Manchester United.

The 40-year-old, who was installed as interim player manager after David Moyes got the boot last month, brought himself off the bench against the Tigers as he provided an assist for Robin Van Persie to score the Red Devils’ third goal of the match.

In a recent exclusive by Goal, it is understood that he still feels physically capable of withstanding the physical rigours of Premier League football and believes he can continue to combine playing with coaching.

However, with Louis Van Gaal touted to take over as the permanent manager of United, it is unclear what role Giggs would play in the club next season. It also doesn’t help matters that Giggs himself has given no indication of where his immediate future lies.

With rumours abound that he will retire at the end of the campaign, the winger refused to be drawn on whether he still has a future on the field.

"I've not decided yet. Nothing's changed. We'll wait till the season's finished, go on holiday and I'll think about it," he told reporters after the victory over Hull City.

As rumours continue about his immediate future, Goal Singapore readers believe that Giggs should still continue playing beyond this season.

43.8% of voters believe that the Welsh wizard still has something to offer to United in a playing capacity, while only 26.8% think he should retire gracefully while at the top of his game. The remaining 29.6% are still undecided on whether Giggs should hang up his boots or not, choosing to make a judgment depending on how big his role as a coach is under the new manager.
