Giggs: I said no to Swansea

Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs said he passed up the opportunity to become Swansea City manager because the Premier League club did not match his ambitions.

Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs said he passed up the opportunity to become Swansea City manager because the Premier League club did not match his ambitions.

Reports suggested Giggs was in line to replace recently sacked coach Francesco Guidolin at Swansea, but the Welsh club instead appointed American Bob Bradley earlier this month following the Italian’s departure.

“I was enjoying a bit of travelling and I got a call off Swansea and I met them a couple of times,” Giggs told ITV.

“In the end, there was just mixed messages from the football side and the ownership side of the club.

“I just felt their ambitions did not really match mine, so it didn’t quite work out.”
