There's speculation about Ryan Giggs' role at Manchester United with manager David Moyes reportedly set to leave the club.

If Moyes' 10-month reign is brought to an end on Tuesday, there will be no shortage of takers for the position.

Jurgen Klopp, Laurent Blanc and Louis van Gaal have the credentials to succeed.

But perhaps a more popular choice would be to install the former Wales star Ryan Giggs, who is part of Moyes' backroom staff having started taking his coaching badges earlier this season.

There is a perception among United fans that Giggs, perhaps along with Paul Scholes or Nicky Butt, could restore some pride and passion to the United dressing room.

United have insisted that Moyes is still their manager, but have refused to deny widespread reports the Scot is to be dismissed.
