Hull city manager Steve Bruce has claimed that he would have no second thoughts about taking Ryan Giggs as a player next season. Giggs is out of contract at the end of the season and there have been suggestions that he will announce his retirement in order to focus on the managerial career.
Even though he is yet to take his coaching badges completely, he has been appointed as the interim manager of United. It is now looking highly unlikely that the club will appoint him on a permanent basis. Even though the next United manager may very well retain him as a player, there has been no shortage of interest.
Former United defender Steve Bruce, who has played with Giggs, told teh england italia odds statistics website that he will have no second thoughts about taking the 40-year-old to Hull city, who have been enjoying a great season after they return to the Premier league. The club has finished the season with no major threat of relegation, while they have also FA Cup final.
They will be meeting Arsenal in this competition at Wembley. Bruce will be aware that the second season is going to be even tougher. Hence, he reckons that the club could do with presence of experienced players like Giggs.
"He can come and see out his days at the KC Stadium, playing in the Europa League. If he's available on a free, I'd take him. If it is Van Gaal for United, I'm sure he'll have his own opinions. But there's always going to be a place for Ryan, I'm sure, because he's been a great. I'm sure they'll find a space for him somewhere. I don't think he'll leave. He will be treated properly, I'm convinced of that. He'll have some role to play. They'll not mess him about, that's for sure,” said Bruce.
