Despite having spent 13 years in his career as a player directed by Sir Alex Ferguson, Ryan Giggs actually claimed to get more coaching knowledge from the figure of Louis Van Gaal.
Giggs has played for Manchester United since 1990, and since then he never moved clubs until he finally hung up his boots in 2014. Before the birth, the man from Wales was once believed to be the temporary coach of Manchester United, replacing David Moyes.
When the season ended, Manchester United recruited Louis Van Gaal as a permanent coach, while Giggs worked as his assistant. However, the collaboration between Ryan Giggs and Van Gaal only lasted for two seasons.
Yes, in the summer of 2016, Van Gaal was kicked out of the manager’s chair. While Ryan Giggs not long ago decided to return to his hometown and accept an offer to deal with the Wales National Team.
During dealing with MU, Van Gaal has often been the target of criticism. Giggs also felt astonished at this, even though as an assistant coach he could gain more knowledge with a Dutch tactician.
“So it’s really different, even if you work under a coach for a long time. I take the managerial side and something different from what Sir Alex did, ”
“Meanwhile, with Louis I saw firsthand a different system, why you are playing a different system, the reasons for this and that, really a very good experience,” Giggs said in the Manchester United Podcast.
During his brief period as Manchester United interim manager, Ryan Giggs won two wins, one draw and one defeat. Although the experience was very brief, but this 46-year-old man admitted that it was an extraordinary experience.
“An amazing experience, and one that makes me confident to be a coach. I can say that until that time, I was still not very sure, ”
“I feel comfortable in making decisions, I feel comfortable in that position. It was a brilliant experience, “he added.
