Ryan Giggs uses Liverpool to make point about Man United
Ryan Giggs says Manchester United could learn a thing or two about improving their attack by looking at Liverpool
Ryan Giggs has told Manchester United need to be more like Liverpool with their attacking play.
The Red Devils have been criticised for a perceived over-reliance on Zlatan Ibrahimovic this season, with the Swedish striker supplying most of Manchester United’s goals.
Jose Mourinho’s men have struggled in Ibrahimovic’s absence this season, with the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford struggling to find consistent form.
Liverpool have been widely praised for their attacking style of play this season under new manager Jurgen Klopp.
And former Manchester United star Giggs feels that the Red Devils could learn a thing or two by casting an eye towards Anfield.
Speaking to The Daily Mail, Giggs said: “They’re getting in those positions, but it’s concentration when it falls for you.
“Jose’s said it, hasn’t he? It’s frustrating. You’re dominating games and have so many draws. You look up and it’s like ‘what could have been?’
“There’s luck too. Pogba’s hit the bar nine times. If he scores those then he’s got 15. It’s that, it’s confidence – all of those need to come together.
“You can’t just rely on one person because they can have an off day. Leicester last year. OK, Jamie Vardy scored a lot of goals, but Riyad Mahrez got 17. That’s what you need.
“That’s how the United teams I played in were like. I’d chip in with seven or eight, Becks would, Scholesy would. Four centre forwards would. The centre halves. Denis Irwin too. The goals came from everywhere.
“You only have to look at Liverpool. I questioned them — they’ve not got a centre forward who can score 20 goals.
“But they just come from everywhere and they are the leading goal-scorers. That’s what United need to get back.”
Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Sunderland on Sunday afternoon.
Liverpool, meanwhile, return to top-flight action when they take on Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday, looking to bounce back from their 2-2 draw with Bournemouth in midweek.
