Ryan Giggs is set to accept the No. 2 position at Manchester United after being offered the role by Louis van Gaal following discussions between the pair at the Dutchman’s house in Noordwijk. According to the Guardian, United will officially appoint van Gaal as its new coach on Thursday. It is unclear whether Giggs, 40, will also continue to play for the club. The report also notes that Dutch striker Robin van Persie is the favorite to take the captain’s armband.
