Coach of the European team classified for Qatar 2022 will resign 5 months before the start of the World Cup

Not directing 18 months agobut officially the former Manchester United star Ryan Giggs follows the coach of the Welsh National Team, one of the last to get their tickets for the Qatar World Cup 2022 after defeating in the European playoff to Ukraine. The first time in 64 years that the “Dragons” have reached the big date, since Sweden 1958.

However, the DT who achieved that feat was not him, but his assistant, Robert Page. The reason? In November 2020, he was accused by his ex-partner of “abusive treatment” against him, an accusation that he denied but that in any case forced him to leave his position on hiatus.

Giggs had to watch from a distance the entire successful campaign of Gareth Bale and company and, according to the British press, has already decided that the best thing for the team is to definitively step aside, so as not to affect the preparation of the squad for Qatar 2022, which will begin in five months. “He doesn’t want to be a distraction for the players”, noted Sky Newsindicating that the official announcement is imminent.

Ryan Giggs hasn’t managed Wales for 18 months.

One of the most awarded footballers in history, Ryan Giggs played his entire career in the Man Utd, from his debut in 1990 until his retirement in 2014, at age 40; for a brief period he even acted as “player-manager” for Old Trafford.

In January 2018 he was appointed as coach of the Welsh National Team -which he never managed to qualify for a major event as a player- and managed to classify it to the European Championship, which he could not direct due to the police case. In total he led 25 games on the bench for his country.
