Manchester United legend heaps praise on one player and bashes another in rare appearance



| Last Updated:


Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has heaped praise on United winger Alejandro Garnacho during a recent public appearance in Dublin.

Giggs, 50, was a part of United’s famous ‘Class of 92’ youth team, who, alongside teammates Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, and Nicky Butt, would form a key part of United’s first team for years to come.

Going on to make 963 appearances for the club, Giggs would retire from professional football in 2014, hanging up his boots as the Red Devils’ all-time top appearance maker.

As reported by the Telegraph, when speaking at Ulster Hall in Belfast, the former United winger would offer his thoughts on his old team’s current situation.

“Like everyone else, it’s frustrating and has been for the last six or seven years,” Stated Giggs. “Nobody knows the answer, and you have to start again. It starts from the top. We’re just so inconsistent, and you just never know what you get.

“That is the No. 1 thing we have to change. The culture of the club,” Giggs continued. “To get players in who want to play for United and will do anything to win a game for United. That is something in the medium term, we have to get those players in.

Giggs would go on to praise Alejandro Garnacho for bringing more to the United team than several of United’s big-money buys:

“He gets you off your seat. He’s giving you 10 times more than the other guy, which costs so much more money. We’ve just recruited terribly for years and years.”

Garnacho has been one of United’s best players so far this season, mirroring Giggs by predominantly playing on the left side, but also venturing to the right when needed.

It is on the right that Garnacho has faced competition from Antony, the Brazillian winger, the player that Giggs was seemingly alluding to with his criticisms.

Meanwhile, Jadon Sancho now on loan at his previous club, Borussia Dortmund, represents another big-money recruit of United’s that has failed to impress.
