MANCHESTER UNITED VETERAN Ryan Giggs could become a coach at the club as soon as next season it is reported today.

New boss David Moyes is keen to utilise the experience of Giggs, 39, with the Welsh midfielder likely to be offered a player-coach role at Old Trafford for the 2013-14 campaign.

The Welshman’s playing time is set to diminish further next season and Giggs wants to continue his 26-year involvement with the club at both junior and senior levels.

Giggs has revealed that he has almost secured his coaching badges and said that becoming a coach at United was a “natural progression” for him, despite the combination of studying and playing being a hard slog at times.

“I’m close to finishing the necessary qualifications now,” Giggs told the Daily Mirror.

“I’ve done that while I’m playing, which at times can be tough, doing homework and going on course while you’re still playing, or doing coaching sessions after training.

“It’s the natural progression, but whether I’ll do it straight away or take a bit of time off when I finish, I don’t know.”
