Louis van Gaal was only appointed manager of Manchester United this summer, but he is already naming Ryan Giggs to be his successor.
Giggs acted as manager for the final four matches of United’s season last year after David Moyes was sacked, and was kept on as an assistant to Van Gaal.

Earlier in the week, Van Gaal commented on how quickly Giggs was learning as a coach, and even said the former-Manchester United star reads the game similar to one Jose Mourinho.
Today the Dutchman come out and told MUTV that he believes Giggs will take over as the next manager at Manchester United.
I expect that he [Giggs] will be the next manager after I am gone.
Now I have the responsibility. He has tasks that he has to perform like the players. What he has to do, for me, he does it very well.”
