Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs could be set for his first managerial job after being linked with Wigan to replace Gary Caldwell, according to the Daily Express.
Gary Caldwell, who guided the Latics to promotion to the Championship last term, was sacked on Tuesday.
With a visit to Neil Warnock’s in-form Cardiff City at the weekend, the club are looking for a quick replacement, report Wales Online.
And it could well be Giggs, who has been out of work since leaving Manchester United in the summer ending his 27-year association with the club.
Wigan sit 23rd in the Championship after one win in their last 10 matches, and just two in 14 league games.
Giggs, who was interviewed for the Swansea job after Francesco Guidolin was sacked, is looking for a way into management after a two-year spell as assistant to Louis van Gaal at United.
The Welshman admitted “Swansea’s ambitions didn’t match my own” as the club appointed Bob Bradley instead.
