Ryan Giggs has today declared his interest in the World Health Organisation’s (W.H.O.) vacant Goodwill Ambassador role, now that the offer to Robert Mugabe has been rescinded, according to sources close to the player.
Mugabe, the long-serving Zimbabwean President and all-round despot, was initially offered the role by the U.N.-affiliated organisation but this was later withdrawn due to public bafflement and outrage.
Giggs, 43, is a former Manchester United player and interim manager and now an occasional football pundit on Sky Sports. He has been linked (by himself) to numerous vacant managerial positions in the Premier League recently, including Leicester and Everton. Giggs’ managerial career currently comprises of 4 games at the tail-end of the 2013-14 season, taking over after the disastrous reign of David Moyes was cut short.
According to this source, Giggs has prepared a PowerPoint presentation utilising snazzy effects such as text ‘swooshing’ in from the side and an image that links to a viral video on YouTube when clicked. The presentation is also believed to highlight the development of James Wilson under Giggs’ tutelage during the 4 games he took charge.
Giggs is said to be confident that this will be enough to secure this prominent role within the coordinating authority for the U.N.’s health system, should he decide to turn down both the Leicester and Everton roles, or any other offers he is sure to receive.
