Ryan Giggs has urged Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United squad to ignore the criticism ahead of their trip to Burnley on Saturday.

The Red Devils slumped to successive Premier League defeats on Monday night following a 3-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford to heap pressure on Mourinho.

Manchester United made a positive start to the clash against their title rivals but the Red Devils were unable to find a way past World Cup winner Hugo Lloris.

England striker Harry Kane broke the deadlock at the start of the second half before former Manchester United target Lucas Moura scored twice to seal three points.

The Red Devils suffered a 3-2 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion earlier this month before their 3-0 rout by Spurs at Old Trafford at the start of the week.

Manchester United are already six points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool FC to put pressure on Mourinho after three games.

Indeed, former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has been linked with Mourinho’s role after the France legend led los Blancos to a third consecutive Champions League crown back in May.

Ex-Manchester United manager Giggs has urged Mourinho and his Manchester United players to ignore the furore in the British media after their slow start to the season.

It is always difficult for a manager after a result like that,” Giggs told Sky Sports.

“I was at the game and I understand Jose’s frustration because on another day United win that game.

“They didn’t and then because of the way the game ended with the third goal, it looks worse than it was. Losing the game before, everything gathers pace.

“The good thing about football is that you always have the next game to come back. It is all about concentrating on that game against Burnley, everything else outside is noise that you can’t control.

“You can only control what you can do. Manchester United have got a fantastic manager, a fantastic group of players and it is a fantastic club.

“They will come out of it hopefully sooner rather than later.”
