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.
Ryan Giggs would relish the chance to return to coaching in future but has poured cold water on reports that he will succeed Francesco Guidolin as Swansea manager.
Speculation is mounting that Guidolin may be about to be replaced by the Swans hierarchy, with Giggs having been installed as the bookmakers' favourite to take charge of a side that have lost three of their opening five Premier League games this season.
However, Giggs, who left his role as Manchester United assistant manager over the summer, ending a 29-year association with the club, says there has been no contact from Swansea.
While he believes he will return to coaching one day, Giggs, who was number two to Louis van Gaal for two seasons at United, is satisfied away from the game at present.
The Welshman told talkSPORT:
There has been no approach from Swansea City but, in any case, there is a manager in place at the club.
I'm happy with life outside of the game right now and enjoying media work. At some stage, further down the line, it's no secret I'd like to get back into football as a coach - but that's for later, not now.
