Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is being lined up to replace under-fire Francesco Guidolin at Swansea City after the Premier League club’s slow start to the new season, according to The Telegraph.
The former Red Devils midfielder fulfilled a number of roles at Old Trafford after retiring from playing, including caretaker manager and assistant manager to Louis van Gaal.
When Jose Mourihno was appointed by United in the summer, Giggs left the club and has been out of the game since.

Swansea have started this season slowly and speculation over Guidolin’s role is already starting to build up a head of steam.
With talk that the former Udinese boss could be the first Premier League manager of the season to be relieved of his duties, Giggs is apparently being lined up as a replacement.
The former winger was being touted in some corners to replace Van Gaal, but a post at the Liberty Stadium seems ideal for the Welshman to cut his teeth in management.
