The former Wales captain has been without a club since leaving his role in United's backroom staff when Jose Mourinho joined in 2016.

"Of course I'm interested," Giggs told Sky Sports News. "I played for Wales, I've said that I want to go back into coaching and that is obviously one of the top jobs.

"I played for United, I played for Wales, those are the two jobs.

"I've not spoken to anyone at the moment but I'd definitely be interested."
