Ryan Giggs has told ITV Sport that talks to take over as Swansea City's new manager fizzled out because he was less than impressed by the club hierarchy's vision for the future.

Swansea City held talks with several candidates before sacking Francesco Guidolin on Monday, ultimately appointing Bob Bradley.

There I was enjoying my year out, having done a bit of travelling and a bit of broadcasting, and I got the call from Swansea. So I met with them a couple of times.

But in the end, there were just mixed messages, really, from the football side and the ownership side of the club, and I just felt that their ambitions didn't really match mine. So it didn't quite work out.
