Begs the question why he took the Wales job then! I hope he suffers a humiliation at the hands of Andorra or the Faroe Islands so he can learn some respect for the game. His own mentor, Sir Alex, started his managerial career at the lowly East Stirlingshire and Giggs should do his time there too.

He'd probably have been a disaster if a Premiership side did actually take a punt on him - clearly doesn't have the experience to jump into that right away; and equally clearly is too arrogant to start lower down the pyramid and actually prove himself.

The Wales job, however, satisfies his ego and gives him a chance to prove he's a competent manager.

From Wales' perspective, they're probably not going to get anyone great for the role anyways; at least by taking a punt on Giggs, there's a chance he's going to turn out to be a good manager. And, frankly, how tough a job is it? Six times a year or so, you get to take charge of twenty or so mediocre cloggers, and you've got to devise a gameplan so that they get the ball as quickly and efficiently as possible to Gareth Bale.

His refusal to start low and work his way up will cost him in the end, he may get a bit more time with wales than he would at somewhere like stoke. But those clubs weren’t appointing him for a reason. It will end eventually as gary Neville did

So presumably that means he'll not turn up to the Wednesday match away to Lithuania due to a 'niggling injury/illness' but will be fully fit in time for his punditry stint on Saturday.
