Could Ryan Giggs take caretaker Manchester United role?

Some Manchester United fans feel Ryan Giggs should have been their manager for a while now. Instead, the club have appointed a series of stop-gaps, from the ill-fated tenure of David Moyes to the now broken reign of Jose Mourinho.
But, with the Telegraph claiming United will appoint an external caretaker in the next 48 hours, could Giggs be a surprise candidate for a dual role?
The current Wales boss will not want to turn his back on his country.  But he does have the time to take on both jobs short-term if the offer is there.
With Michael Carrick and Nicky Butt currently employed by United, it is surprising to hear that an external candidate is being considered for a temporary solution.  But a move for Giggs would make sense.

He has the managerial experience lacking in his former teammates. He could also work in tandem with them with no need for introductions.
It would be a bold move for United, but the time has come to go back to their roots.

Appointing another foreign manager, especially for five months, makes no sense at this time.
Perhaps Giggs is not even a possibility.  But he should be.

This is an opportunity United cannot pass up.  The Class of 92 know how to succeed on the pitch and the Welshman is learning similar in the dugout.
