Ryan Giggs blamed Manchester United’s struggles on their recruitment process, Giggs became assistant to Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford who lasted two years.
The Wales manager said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to copy Jurgen Klopp
Former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has blamed the club’s recruitment policy for their struggles after Sir Alex Ferguson left.
David Moyes took over from the legendary Ferguson as manager back in 2013 but he lasted less than a season after a string of poor results. After the Scot, Louis van Gaal came in but also didn’t last long. Giggs integrated himself into the coaching team and was the Dutchman’s assistant.
Since, Jose Mourinho has also tried his luck to steady the ship and Old Trafford but failed, and Giggs put it down to recruitment.

He said ‘Moyes didn’t last a season and the club recruitment was all over the place.
‘You had Sir Alex players, Moyes players, then Van Gaal, with a different philosophy and different players. Then you’ve got 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.’
Former team-mate to Giggs, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has since taken over the reins at United and achieved a third-placed finish in the Premier League.
Giggs also said that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should copy Liverpool Jurgen Klopp led Liverpool to their first Premier League triumph after some great signings
Wales boss Giggs added that Solskjaer needs to take inspiration from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp after the Reds Premier League triumph.
‘For example, Jurgen 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.’
