Ryan Giggs has agreed a contract settlement with Manchester United and left the club after 29 years at Old Trafford.
The BBC are reporting the news with United expected to release an official statement over Giggs’ departure in the coming days.
The 42-year-old had one year remaining on his contract as assistant manager but new boss Jose Mourinho has already made it clear that Rui Faria will be his only number two.
Giggs was reportedly offered another role on the club’s staff but it was understood to be not to his liking and he decided to move on.
The Welshman, who made a record 963 appearances for the club, is currently in France working as a TV pundit at Euro 2016.
He holds a Uefa Pro License and was recently linked to the Nottingham Forest job before they appointed Philippe Montanier.
Giggs joined the United academy on his 14th birthday, turning professional aged 17 in November 1990 and making his first-team debut against Everton on March 2, 1991.
