Giggs learning from Van Gaal

Roma boss Paulo Fonseca hails team’s improvement

Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs is enjoying working alongside Louis van Gaal and appreciates the amount of responsibility the Dutchman has given him.

Giggs was thrust into a management role at Old Trafford when he was asked to take charge of the club for the final four games of the 2013/14 season following the sacking of David Moyes.

He took a step back with the appointment of Van Gaal at the beginning of last season, becoming the Dutchman's assistant.

Giggs admitted that working with the two-time Champions League winner has been an incredible learning experience for him.

"I have learned loads from him," Giggs told Sky Sports. "Just seeing him first hand has been a massive learning experience for me.

"The manager has given me that platform to go out and coach every day. And I am enjoying it thoroughly. He didn't know me before I met him, but we instantly hit it off.

"And he has given me massive responsibility from the start. I have worked hard in coaching just as I did as a player. He recognises that."

Now beginning his second season as the Red Devils' assistant manager, Giggs revealed he has no intention of leaving the club he spent 14 years with as a player any time soon.

"There are no immediate plans. I am really enjoying what I am doing, working under Louis and trying to get better," he added.
