Pushing Euro 2020 back 12 months was “100 per cent the right decision”, says Ryan Giggs, with the Wales boss prepared to wait for “normal lives” to resume amid the coronavirus pandemic.
UEFA has been forced to delay its showpiece international event amid the global Covid-19 outbreak.
With domestic calendars having shut down and restrictions of movement in place, there was no way that a competition due to be staged across the continent could be held this summer.
An unfortunate delay means that many may miss their chance to grace the grandest of European stages, and the scene may look completely different by 2021, for players and coaches, with there plenty of football to come before then.
Giggs is still hoping to take in his first tournament as a coach, having guided Euro 2016 semi-finalists Wales back to another finals, but is happy to bide his time and wait for a worldwide crisis to pass over.
The Manchester United legend told Sky Sports:
“UEFA made 100 per cent the right decision postponing the Euros.
“For international managers it is always a difficult time after the November games because you don’t see the players until March. Obviously, that is going to be even longer now but that comes second to everyone’s health and well-being and making sure everyone is healthy.

“Then we can get back to the business of football and sport in general which gives so many people a rest from everyday life. We just hope it comes sooner rather than later but first of all let’s get rid of this virus and get on with our normal lives again.”
