Manchester United have been on a downward turn but club legend Ryan Giggs believes they can change their course by following rivals, Liverpool. 

The Red Devils have been stumbling ever since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. All of his successors failed to match his success with only Jose Mourinho adding to their trophy cabinet. 

With the serial winner now with Tottenham, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has steadied their ship. United finished third in Premier League, showing signs of progress.

To relive their glory days, club legend Ryan Giggs, wants them to follow Liverpool’s trajectory. The Reds have had Jurgen Klopp at the helm for five years and are reaping the benefits of his sustained presence.

“[David] Moyes didn’t last a season and the club recruitment was all over the place,” Giggs told the Daily Star

“You had Sir Alex players, Moyes players, then [Louis] van Gaal, with a different philosophy and different players. Then you’ve got [Jose] Mourinho coming in with his group.”

“So, you’ve got this mix of cultures but are they really United players? To get rid of that takes a long time. That’s why the owners – and stability – is really important.”

“For example, Klopp has been at Liverpool five seasons. Each year he’s improved, but it took him time to get players that he didn’t fancy out. It’s not just about bringing them in.”
