Giggs still had a year left on his assistant manager contract but incoming manager Jose Mourinho has opted to replace him with Rui Faria.

An announcement is expected in the coming days.

It's unclear if he was offered another role within the set-up prior to his decision to leave the club, nearly three decades after he initially joined.

Giggs was part of the famous Class of '92, and soon burst his way into the senior side to establish himself as a key player under Fergie's reign.

The Welshman was to be a regular fixture during the most successful spell in the club's history when he won 13 league titles, two European Cups, four FA Cups and four League Cups.

He managed to rack up 963 caps for the club before retirement in 2014 when he moved into a coaching role at the club.

It's the end of an era as he leaves, but at least we still have this goal...
