Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has asked Ryan Giggs to leave the club and starts a new lease of life, to succeed in management.
The 42 year-old has been at United for 29 years, and his dream of being in management vanished after new boss Jose Mourinho decided not to retain him on his staff.
Ferguson says long-time rival Mourinho was right to go with “his own man” – long-time assistant Rui Faria.
“It is time Ryan stood on his own feet, got out there and accepted the challenge,” he said.
Ferguson thinks his former charge, who was assistant to former United manager Louis van Gaal, has the qualities to make it on his own.
