Manchester United have confirmed that assistant manager Ryan Giggs has left the club, ending the Welshman's 29-year association with the Old Trafford outfit.
The 42-year-old made a record 963 appearances for the Red Devils, winning a record 13 league titles, two European Cups, four FA Cups and four League Cups before retiring in 2014.
"The time feels right and, although I have no immediate plans to step into management, it is where I want to be," Giggs said in a statement on the Man Utd website.
"It's time for a new chapter and a new challenge. I'm excited about the future - I've had the best apprenticeship into management anyone could ever ask for."
