Giggs experienced a little time in the Old Trafford dugout acting as interim manager after David Moyes was sacked for underperforming with United.

The former Wales worldwide joins a host of other candidates who have been interviewed by the Welsh FA which include, Craig Bellamy, Osian Roberts and Mark Bowen, with the Welsh officials understood to be aiming to make the appointment of Chris Coleman's successor as early as Monday.

The interviews took place on Thursday (Jan 11), overseen by Jonathan Ford, the FAW chief executive, and it is anticipated that a decision will be made quickly, with Giggs now the front runner.

Nevertheless, it seems like a better job awaits him at the worldwide level, as the former Welsh global has gone through an interview with the Wales national team for a managerial position, as per Sky Sports.

He later admitted that the pressure of managing United had made him break down in tears and struggle to sleep, but he stayed on as assistant manager under Louis van Gaal before departing the club with Jose Mourinho's appointment in 2016.

The news comes as YouTube released a statement confirming that Paul would be punished for his misdeeds. He also said the channel will soon announce changes that will further protect the YouTube community.

But Giggs, 44, when asked whether he still wanted the job, said: "No".

Giggs, who made 64 appearances for Wales during his playing career, has been linked with succeeding Chris Coleman, who left to manage Championship side Sunderland after Wales' failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

Having been interested in the Swansea job, it eventually fizzled out into nothing but it seems as though Wales are seriously considering Giggs as their man.

However, doubts remain over whether he would want to work with Coleman's former assistant Roberts, who previously gave his support to Giggs.
