Manchester United confirmed today that their club legend Ryan Giggs has left Old Trafford.
Giggs, who is the most decorated British player in history, spent 29 years at the club as a player, coach and assistant manager.
According to widespread reports, the Welshman is leaving Old Trafford after being told he would not be Jose Mourinho's assistant and he will now try his hand at management elsewhere..
Giggs confirmed the move in an official statement as manutd.com quoted: "After 29 seasons at Manchester United as a player and assistant manager, I know winning is in the DNA of this club - giving youth a chance, and playing attacking and exciting football.
"It's healthy to have high expectations, it's right to expect to win. Manchester United expects, deserves, nothing less.
"This is why it is a huge decision for me to step away from the club that has been my life since the age of 14. It has not been a decision that I have made lightly. I'll take away so many special memories as well as a lifetime of experiences that will, I hope, serve me well in the future.
"However, the time feels right and although I have no immediate plans to step into management, it is where I want to be."
