REPORT: Ryan Giggs will not be part of Jose Mourinho's Manchester United coaching staff if he gets the job

The Welshman has been with the club since 1987.

After various reports emerged over the weekend regarding the future of Louis Van Gaal, it seems that the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford is a matter of "when" rather than "if". An FA Cup win against Crystal Palace doesn't seem like it's going to be enough to keep LVG in the United hot seat as the former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid coach looks set for a return to the Premier League.

Man Utd finished 15 points behind the champions Leicester City but failure in the league was compounded by a dismal Champions League campaign and a dull tactical approach that the players intensely disliked.

Mourinho is the candidate that's most likely to replace the Dutchman, but it appears that 'The Special One' will have to find a new right-hand man to help him settle into life at Old Trafford.

It's reported that Mourinho was keen to extend Giggs' stay in United's backroom set-up, but the United legend doesn't fancy working alongside Mourinho.

Giggs, 42, was initially an assistant to David Moyes and had four games as caretaker boss at the end of that season after Moyes was sacked. The Welshman continued on as part of the Louis Van Gaal's coaching team but it seems like his long association with the club could be coming to an end.
