Manchester United are bracing themselves for an announcement from Ryan Giggs this week, with the Red Devils legend set to walk away.
According to the Daily Mirror, the 42-year-old has decided not to accept an lesser role after being Louis van Gaal’s assistant manager and has told close friends that he is ready to move on in order to further his career.
Giggs has emerged as the new favourite for the Nottingham Forest job, but he has apparently not ruled out taking a break from the game altogether to assess his options.
Mourinho is set to bring in his own backroom staff, and was only willing for Giggs to predominantly work for the U21 squad next season and beyond.
The report also mentions that some of Giggs’ former United team-mates have also advised him to pursue his own managerial career.
