Ryan Giggs' dream to lead the Wales national team in a major competition as Euro 2020 seems to be in serious danger. The Manchester United legend is currently banned from leading the team for the World Cup qualifiers.
Reason? It all started after Giggs is still under investigation for an alleged attack on his girlfriend, Kate Greville during last November. The former player of the "Red Devils" has categorically denied the accusations, but the fact that he was excluded from leading the team for the World Cup qualifying matches is not a good sign for the approaching European either.
Many voices say it is only a matter of time before Giggs finally leaves the leadership's office. In this case, the bench number 1 will most likely be Rob Page. The former footballer is part of Wales coaching staff, but the burden of the task can be too great for Page, who lacks experience with major teams.
Ryan Giggs took over the leadership of the team in January 2018, and since then he has tried to create a solid and competitive group in the international arena. Meanwhile we recall that Wales failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. But, the Welsh national team managed to record one of its best performances in history in 2016. Under the direction of Chris Coleman the team reached the semi-finals of the prestigious competition.
As for Ryan Giggs, it seems the Welsh legend is in a race against time. This is because the only real chance for Giggs to retain his post is to strengthen his position and image, until the start of Euro 2020. If the allegations against him are proven, the chances of seeing the former footballer at the top of the bench are ready. zero.
