Ryan Giggs interested in Leicester and Everton jobs

Ryan Giggs interested in Leicester and Everton jobs

"However, there are a lot of coaches out there who would be interested in those positions", Giggs told Sky Sports.

Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has confirmed his interest in replacing Ronald Koeman as boss of Everton and also the vacant managerial position at Leicester City.

"I think you look at those two teams, Leicester being champions two seasons ago, Everton being a fantastic club with a fantastic history, for me these are clubs I would be interested in", said Giggs.

Everton parted company with Ronald Koeman on Monday, after Everton's 5-2 loss to Arsenal at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Giggs has been without a job in management since leaving his assistant manager post at Manchester United after the appointment of Jose Mourinho.

The Manchester United said he would however only be interested in club who share the same ambitions as himself.

The only time that he has managed at the highest level was when he took temporary charge of United in 2014 for four matches after David Moyes was sacked.

The 23-year-old has not been a regular in United's Premier League campaign this season, having made just one appearance before manager Jose Mourinho called on him to replace Phil Jones against Huddersfield after the England global suffered an injury in the 23rd minute.

More experienced managers such as Claude Puel are considered the bookmakers' favourite for the position, but as stated earlier, this decision would have to come down to the club's philosophy moving forward.

"Marcus is one of those players who - I have been to Old Trafford a couple of times this season - as soon as he gets the ball you can feel it in the crowd", he said.

"In the end there was just mixed messages from the football side and the ownership side of the club".

The worry about hiring someone like Giggs is that his inexperience as a manager could lead to further struggles for the club, and they simply cannot afford to let him learn on the job. However, the reaction towards his comments hasn't been positive.
