‘Give him the money’ – Giggs urges Manchester United to back Solskjaer with ‘five or six players’

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has urged his former club to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the funds that were afforded to his predecessors, with the Norwegian’s squad needing ‘five or six players’.

Solskjaer has steered Manchester United to their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign, the Red Devils going into last weekend’s fixture against Norwich all the way down in 15th.

The 3-1 win lifted the 20-time league winners up to seventh, as well as providing the club with a much-needed shot of confidence following their dismal start to the campaign.

Their form has seen questions raised about the suitability of Solskjaer as United manager, though Wales boss Giggs thinks that his former teammate deserves both time and money, with the three signings that he made in the summer all having impressed so far.

“We need to bring quality in,” Giggs told the United Stand.

“Ole has brought three in who are all doing well. His dealings have been very good so far. Give him the money other managers have had to get Manchester United players.

“Get another five or six players like that in, we will see a real difference. They are missing that creative player.

“It is no coincidence, the best performances have been against good teams. The lesser teams are always harder to break down.

“We are probably just a bit shy of them creative players and I think Ole recognises that.”
