Ryan Giggs Set For Premier League Return

Ryan Giggs Set For Premier League Return

Ryan Giggs is reportedly being targeted by Swansea to replace 'dead man walking' Francesco Guidolin, The Telegraph is reporting.

Swans chairman Huw Jenkins wanted to approach Giggs for the role, but so far has seen his attempts to do so blocked by the club's American owners, Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien, who are unwilling to make a managerial change so early into the season.

However, what is working in Jenkins' favour regarding his approach for Giggs is not only the fact that Guidolin has delivered just one win from Swansea's opening five Premier League matches, but also the fact that the Italian coach's methods have affected his relationship with the squad. Clashes with long-serving players Neil Taylor and Ki Sung-yueng has caused disharmony within the camp and his preparations for games have often confused several other players.

The Telegraph is also reporting that, during Swansea's pre-season tour of the United States, Guidolin would regularly miss morning training sessions to watch the Tour de France on television. Senior players and staff are believed to have expressed concerns over the Italian's suitability for the role since he was appointed as Garry Monk's successor, in January.

Whether Giggs would accept the role were it offered to him is a different matter altogether, but the Welshman's willingness to get into management, following his emotional departure from Manchester United, would probably work into Jenkins' hands should the Swansea chairman get his way.
