Giggs Thinks Manchester Utd. Needs Two Stars
Former Manchester United interim manager Ryan Giggs has something to say regarding the team’s chances for the future as the team plans for survival without Paul Pogba.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been racking his brains for any way to lift his team from falling behind the rest of the Premier League race as the squad’s woes continue to escalate.
Following their recent loss to rivals Liverpool, the team has been looking back on their mistakes and are trying to figure out a way to come back strong without their key players who are missing much of the season due to injuries.
Bruno Fernandes has been in the team’s radar for some time now. He remains as the team’s top target, but the team is yet to come up with an agreement with Sporting for the 25-year-old’s services. The team has ten days left to secure a deal as the January transfer window nears its end.
Giggs, however, has a different idea to solve the team’s woes. He believes that Solskjaer does not need to look far.
‘I don’t think he’s got the players. I think he’s probably a couple of players short in actually changing that way of playing’, Giggs said in an interview. ‘That No.10, that focal point and also a midfielder. Whether Pogba’s that, he’s been so inconsistent. Obviously on his day he could be that player. But they’re missing a Grealish or a Maddison, a player like that which can unlock the door’.
‘I think it suits because of the pace we’ve got. It suits the way they play and also, when you come up against good teams, they like to dominate possession. We haven’t got the players. Ole has got rid of (Alexis) Sanchez, (Romelu) Lukaku and not really replaced them because for whatever reason the player isn’t out there. He hasn’t fancied a player’, Giggs added. ‘I think he’s being given time to actually have two or three transfer windows and I think, judging from his first transfer window, he’s done well. Now he needs to go again a couple of times and get them players in where you can maybe tweak the way that you play’.
