Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Ryan Giggs, after next manager odds drop
By Harvey Byrne
Ryan Giggs has had his odds slashed to 6/1 to become the next Aston Villa manager – and Villa fans have taken to Twitter to say they wouldn’t want the former Manchester United man.
As reported by the Sun, Giggs, 42, has had his odds fall from 12/1 to 6/1 overnight.
Roberto Di Matteo was sacked from the job on Monday morning after just 12 games in charge at Villa park.
The Sun states that David Wagner and Steve Bruce still lead the market for the job, but Villa fans aren’t happy on social media with Giggs’ name appearing to be linked more.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Definitely wouldn't want Giggs – way too much of a gamble for my liking. #avfc

I'd take Clarke over Bruce, not sure about giggs but he's got more wins at villa park than anyone in the current squad #avfc #vtid #manager

If Giggs went to #avfc I'd want him to start ahead of Westwood https://t.co/VmDUNiNLhI

The Birmingham outfit begin their hunt for a new boss as they squander in 19th place in the Championship having picked up just 10 points from their opening 11 league games this term.
The Midlands side suffered relegation from the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history last season after finishing bottom of England’s top-flight.
They are looking to return to the top flight at the first time of asking and given the money spent during the summer window anything less would be considered a failure.
However, Giggs has only spent four matches in charge of Manchester United, where he picked up two wins, a draw and a loss and it may prove too much of a risk to give the former Wales international his first proper job as a manager.
