Manchester United Legend Reveals Interest in Both Toffees & Leicester Managerial Roles

Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has expressed his interest in the vacant managerial positions at Premier League sides Leicester City and Everton.

Both the Toffees and the former Premier League winners are without a manager following their sacking of their respective bosses.

United fans will hope Giggs is right that the young defender needs time to bed in to the squad to then show his true talent.

Burnley's Sean Dyche has been instilled as the favourite to succeed Craig Shakespeare at Leicester City, while Carlo Ancelotti is the big-name Everton are thought to want after Ronald Koeman's exit.

In the modern day managerial circus, Giggs won't find life easy where everything is based on results.

"Manchester City are obviously still flying with their results and performances but I think they'll have their problems", Giggs told Sky Sports.

However Giggs also acknowledged that several managers will be vying for these two jobs.

As well as Hebei, where he has two years left on his contract, Pellegrini has also managed Malaga, Real Madrid and Villarreal since moving to European football in 2004 from River Plate.

"I've said all along that I'd be open to clubs which share the ambitions of myself", he said.

"I want to improve clubs and players, to enjoy working for them and for players to enjoy the challenge".

Mourinho has used Lindelof sparingly so far this season following his £31 million move from Benfica, starting him in the UEFA Champions League and Carabao Cup but not in the Premier League.

Giggs watched defenders Stam, Vidic and Evra go on to lift Premier League titles and the Champions League after tough starts to their United careers, and he insists there is no reason why Lindelof can not bounce back and be a success. "It's more about the philosophy for me than the stature of the club".

Giggs is now taking some time away from football, but wants to get into management fully.
