Ryan Giggs has denied reports he is close to being named the next Swansea City manager, as he claims there has been no contact from the Welsh club.
Current Swans’ boss Francesco Guidolin is coming under increasing pressure at the Liberty Stadium after an underwhelming start to the season which has seen them without a win in four Premier League matches.
The Welsh club were also eliminated from the EFL Cup on Wednesday by Manchester City, and Giggs is believed to have been shortlisted as a possible candidate to replace Guidolin if they eventually decide to get rid of him.
Giggs, a former Wales captain, spent the last two seasons as Manchester United assistant manager under Louis van Gaal, but did have a four-game spell in charge at Old Trafford in 2014, but left the club in July following the arrival of Jose Mourinho.
The 42-year-old has previously stated he would like to enter management but told talkSPORT he’s satisfied for now with his interests outside of football.
“There has been no approach from Swansea City but, in any case, there is a manager in place at the club,” said Giggs.
“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.”
