Ryan Giggs has denied claims he failed an interview with Swansea, after the Premier League club picked American Bob Bradley ahead of him.
The Manchester United legend was touted as a possible candidate to take over at the Liberty Stadium, and was reportedly interviewed by the club, with reports claiming he failed to land the job because of his underwhelming performance during the interview.
But the Welshman has now reacted, claiming Swansea did not meet his ambition.
“I met with them [Swansea] a couple of times but in the end there was just mixed messages from the football side and the ownership side of the club. I just felt their ambitions did not really match mine.”
Giggs is keen to secure a management role after leaving Manchester United as assistant boss in the summer following a 24-year career at Old Trafford.
But Swansea appointed American Bob Bradley instead, saying that Giggs had an ‘underwhelming interview’ for the post, despite wanting to bring with him a backroom team which included former United team-mate Nicky Butt.
Bayern Munich assistant manager Paul Clement, previously Derby manager, was also interviewed for the post, as was former Villarreal boss Marcelino.
Swansea are just one place above the relegation zone, with just four points from seven games so far this season.
