Giggs, 38, told the Telegraph: "When I do finish playing, I'll try to find the next best thing. Management does interest me. The nearer I get to finishing, the more I think about it. All I can do is prepare myself as best I can for when I do finish. I've been doing my coaching courses with Nev [Gary Neville] – levels one two, A-Licence. We're starting the Pro-Licence next year."
Asked whether it might be his last season, he replied: "It could be, yes. I'm a similar mindset that I've been for the past couple of years: evaluate after Christmas, see how I feel, see what the manager thinks.
"If I'm not enjoying it, if I'm not contributing like I have done in the last couple of years then I'll finish. I'm 39 in November. I'm not worried by it [retirement]. It's been coming for a couple of years. But I'm still enjoying it. I still feel I'm contributing to the team.
Asked what a Giggs teams may look like he added: "I'd like a few wingers in there - I've learnt from the master here.
"It all comes from the manager. You see him joking with all the staff in canteen. He knows every schoolboy's name who comes in during the holidays, every apprentice's name. It still fascinates me how he still does that.''
