The search for Swansea’s next manager will have to continue as former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has ruled himself out of the running.
Swansea later confirmed that Leon Britton will take the reigns in Saturday’s match against Crystal Palace.
“Britton, who stepped into a player-coaching role last month after 15 years at the club, will be assisted by under-23 coaches Gary Richards and Cameron Toshack. Goalkeeping coach Tony Roberts will also continue to assist.
“The quartet took training this morning and Britton will face the media at 1pm this afternoon live on this website.
“Further details on the managerial search will follow for supporters in due course.”
Giggs spoke about not being interested after being passed over for the gig in 2016.
“No” Giggs said (h/t ESPN FC).
“I’ve spoken to them before, last time before they appointed Bob Bradley.”
Giggs denied that the losses of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente had an impact on his decision making process.
“I don’t know, I’m not in the club but obviously over the years [it has been] a really well run club, [who] play the right way and are an established Premier League team.
“But it’s tough now, you see the teams down there. It gets tougher each year. They lost good players, didn’t they? They lost Sigurdsson, they lost Llorente, and probably never replaced them. That’s always a problem.”
