Wales boss hoping Giggs will join coaching staff on ad-hoc basis

Gary Speed is hoping veteran Ryan Giggs will join his Wales backroom staff on an ad-hoc basis. Speed has been in touch with the Manchester United veteran on a number of occasions in an attempt to persuade the 37-year-old to join his coaching staff. While the Wales boss says the winger is keen to link up with the squad for a couple of days at a time around international matches, he also has to consider his commitments with the Red Devils. Speed said: "I've spoken to Ryan a few times. He's very keen, but obviously he has got his hands full at Manchester United and it looks like he is going to sign for another year there. "He might pop in a couple of days, he is very keen, but he has got to prioritise. I am sure Ryan will be knocking around the place, hopefully, now and again."
