Giggs happy with new role

Ryan Giggs has said that he is enjoying his new role at Manchester United, despite the clubs stuttering start to the season.

The winger, who turns 40 next month, was installed as player-coach following David Moyes appointment as manager in the summer having spent his entire career at Old Trafford.

He has been linked with the Wales manager position amidst uncertainty around Chris Coleman’s role, though he has admitted to being happy in his current position.

Meanwhile, Shinji Kagawa has blamed his poor international form on his lack of playing time at club level, according to the Mail Online.

Japan lost both of their recent friendly internationals, and the 24 year old, who has played just 46 minutes of league football this season, has suggested that there is a link between the defeats and a lack of personal match fitness.

The forward has been linked with a return to former club Borussia Dortmund when the transfer window reopens in January.

Elsewhere, David Moyes has spoken to the Metro regarding Wilfried Zaha’s lack of first team action.

The England winger has made just one appearances for the club since arriving in the summer, and Moyes has put this down to the fierce competition at the club.
