Ryan Giggs calls for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be backed financially

Ryan Giggs calls for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be backed financially

Manchester United great Ryan Giggs has revealed the main difference between Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his predecessors Jose Mourinho, Louis van Gaal and David Moyes.

The legendary Welshman believes the former prolific striker hasn’t been backed as well as the club’s former managers and has called for more money to be made available to him.

Solskjaer brought in just three players in what was meant to be the start of his revolution despite letting go of many first-team stars.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire and Daniel James were signed and while all have impressed so far, it’s clear more was needed.

It’s believed Solskjaer wanted more as well but was ultimately let down by an incompetent board much to the frustrations of fans.

According to Manchester Evening News, Giggs said: “We need to bring quality in. Ole has brought three in who are all doing well. His dealings have been very good so far.

“Give him the money other managers have had to get Man United players.

“Get another five or six players like that in, we will see a real difference.

“They are missing that creative player. It is no coincidence, the best performances have been against good teams. The lesser teams are always harder to break down.

“We are probably just a bit shy of them creative players and I think Ole recognises that.”

Manchester United have enjoyed the best of starts this season which has seen Solskjaer quickly come under pressure but there are hopes they’ve turned a corner after back to back wins vs Partizan and Norwich.

With players slowly but surely returning from injury as well, it should mean the club are more capable and carry on climbing up the table.

Only qualification for next year’s edition of the Champions League can be considered as progress but much of it relies on keeping an already thin squad fit.
