Ryan Giggs has officially been announced as the new manager of the Welsh national team following on from Chris Coleman's resignation after they failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup is Russia.
Ever since Ryan Giggs decided to retire from playing and move into coaching at Manchester United, later becoming caretaker manager when David Moyes was sacked, he has always had his eyes set on becoming a manager.
The former left winger has found trouble getting the sort of high profile role he would have liked but Chris Coleman's decision to step down as boss of the national team has given him the opportunity.
Giggs beat competition from Osian Roberts, Craig Bellamy and Mark Bowen to land himself a four year deal:
Despite an incredible 24 year career with his club side, that included winning 13 Premier League titles, the 44 year old made only 64 appearances for Wales, often missing friendlies.
His absence from the national team on so many occasions plus his lack of managerial experience has led to skepticism from many fans on social media
This is a terrible appointment and a massive step backwards- Sarge Anarki (@SgtAnarki) January 15, 2018
Love Giggs but why does he think he deserves a management role without any background experience- ♆ Prince Paul (@ShawFutbol) January 15, 2018
Okay so giggs is now in charge, he has a big task ahead of him to win over majority of the fans- Dexter (@sully0000) January 15, 2018
Even though we dont want Giggs as manager, wont stop me following my country everywhere #cymruambyth- Sam Webb (@samwebb27) January 15, 2018
In Giggs' defence when Mark Hughes was made manager of the national team he was still playing and also had no managerial experience before being a catalyst for the side's recent success.
After failing to qualify for Russia the new manager will first have the new UEFA Nations League to compete in, with Wales in the second division, before qualifying for the 2020 Euros begins.
