Ryan Giggs reckons pretty much all of the ‘Fergie Fledglings’ will carry on in some type of coaching role after retiring from the game.

“Gary would be a brilliant assistant manager because he is focused and organised,” said Giggs. “He could do the day-to-day coaching. He gets his point across well on the training pitch. I wouldn’t be so great at that. I’m better face-to-face, so probably better at management. I’m not sure about David Beckham (becoming a manager), but Scholesy will get involved, though probably not as a manager, and Phil will definitely be a manager. I hope I can be a good manager. I like helping players and improving them, but the ‘life expectancy’ of a manager is just 18 months, so you don’t get long.”
