Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs passed up the opportunity to become Swansea City manager because the Premier League club did not ‘match his ambitions’.
The 42-year-old was in line to replace recently sacked coach Francesco Guidolin but the Welsh club instead appointed American Bob Bradley earlier this month following the Italian’s departure.
“I was enjoying a bit of travelling and I got a call off Swansea and I met them a couple of times. In the end there was just mixed messages from the football side and the ownership side of the club.
”I just felt their ambitions did not really match mine so it didn’t quite work out.”
Giggs won 13 Premier League titles as a player for United and managed them for four matches on an interim basis following the sacking of David Moyes in 2014.
