Ryan Giggs wants to bring Manchester United’s Head of Athletic Development, Tony Strudwick, to the Wales national team set-up, according to WalesOnline.
The former United winger was recently appointed Chris Coleman’s successor as the Wales national team manager, and he has reportedly decided to abandon Dr. Ryland Morgan, Wales’ Head of Performance under Coleman for the successful Euro 2016 campaign, as he is not in Giggs’ plans.
Strudwick previously worked for United as a first-team fitness coach under Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes, before moving to an academy position under Louis van Gaal.
Joining the Red Devils’ in 2007, Strudwick is said to have developed a close relationship with Giggs during his time with the club.
Giggs is also keen on Albert Stuivenberg as his number two with the future of Osian Roberts uncertain. Stuivenberg also worked as a coach with United.
So far, only goalkeeping coach Tony Roberts has been confirmed as staying on, though physio Sean Connelly is also expected to continue.
