Ryan Giggs raises questions about Ander Herrera at Man United
Ryan Giggs was not impressed by Ander Herrera's post-match comments after Manchester United's loss to Huddersfield
Ryan Giggs has admitted that he was not impressed by Ander Herrera’s post-match comments after Manchester United’s 2-1 loss to Huddersfield in the Premier League last weekend.
The Spanish midfielder was publicly quoted as having questioned his team-mates’ desire and work rate following the shock loss to the newly-promoted side.
Jose Mourinho himself was not happy about Herrera’s post-match comments after Manchester United slumped to their first Premier League defeat of the season.
And Manchester United legend Giggs has echoed the Portuguese coach’s remarks by questioning Herrera’s choice of words last weekend.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Giggs said: “I am a little bit surprised at Ander Herrera’s comments though because you wouldn’t really comment about your team-mates, you leave that to the manager.
“When you start questioning you team-mates’ work rates, even if they weren’t at it, it can set a dangerous precedent.”
Manchester United are currently preparing for their League Cup clash against Swansea City on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils are currently second in the Premier League table and five points behind leaders Manchester City as they look to challenge for the title this season.
Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
The Red Devils, who take on Tottenham this weekend, finished sixth in the table last season but won both the League Cup and Europa League in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge.
