After months of gossip surrounding Ryan Giggs next move in football, which have seen him connected to various managerial positions to and fro the English Football League, Ryan Giggs has eventually put pen to paper on a new job which will see him steer towards a youth academy in Vietnam.
The legend and the thirteen-time Premier League champion will start his new role as head of the academy at Promotion Fund of Vietnamese Football Talents FC (PVF) on 20th November, which will see him be “in charge for
coaching players, training coaches and engaging in building and growing PVF to become the leading youth football training center in Vietnam, in accordance with the famous football academies throughout the world,” as per an official statement via PVF’s website.
And Giggs might not be the only Class of ’92 alumni to be signing on with PVF.
As stated by the Mirror, Paul Scholes is going to be announced as a technical adviser, alongside Giggs and both of
them will be award formally at an official ceremony in a week’s time at PVF’s new training center.
Giggs had work under Louis Van Gaal as assistant manager during the Dutchman’s two year period in charge at Old Trafford, where many people await Giggs to eventually become manager.
But, Van Gaal’s time was, well, inconsistent to say the least and the United board decided against opting for Giggs to succeed the Dutchman and but later appointed Jose Mourinho.
PVF are based in Ho Chi Minh City and presently playing in the Vietnamese V League’s second division.
They will be hoping the agreement of Giggs and Scholes can motivate them to better things over the next two years.
Manchester United Legend Paul Scholes return to Old Trafford in a coaching ability when Giggs took over as player/manager for four games at the back end of the 2013/14 season following the dismiss of David Moyes.
