Giggs told the Guardian: ‘No, it was more Louis [van Gaal] who said it. You know how Louis is. He told Ed Woodward [United’s executive vice-chairman]: “I will be manager for three years and then Ryan will take over.”
‘Typical Louis. No one else made me any promises. I didn’t think I was ready when I finished playing but, after working with Louis, I felt more than prepared.
‘I know it didn’t work out for United but Louis was brilliant for me because he is a teacher.’
Giggs took the Wales job in 2018 replacing Chris Coleman after leaving United two years prior.
The former United winger won 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League trophies during his time at Old Trafford.
