Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has told the red devils officials to make sure Ryan Giggs stays on as part of the coaching staff, even if Louis van Gaal takes over next season.
Van Gaal is expected to be appointed this week as United look to appoint a top-class boss to bring in the kind of players that will get them back to the top of the game.
And former United skipper Robson reckons the 62-year-old must include Giggs next season, as well as the Welshman’s fellow ‘Class of ’92’ graduates Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt.
As quoted on the Metro, he said: “It would be very disappointing for those lads not to be kept on, in whatever role, as they are part of Manchester United.
“The fans would be very disappointed if they don’t have a future in the club.
“I have read Van Gaal wants to bring in a goalkeeper coach, a fitness coach, and [Patrick] Kluivert as his assistant.
“It is up to the board to step in and say.
“You can have leeway with this, but there are definitely restrictions on this part of the club”.
“That has to come from the club rather than the new coach. Sometimes I think when you go into a new club, why not give the [existing] staff a chance?
