Last quote by Ryan Giggs

They've obviously invested heavily on full-backs but the question is still whether Vincent Kompany can stay fit because his influence and experience are key for them.feedback

Ryan Giggs quotes

Jul 22 2017

Michael Owen, Andy Cole, Ruud van Nistelrooy and all those great strikers missed chances but their mentality was 'next time, I will score'. Everyone knows Lukaku can score, but it's about the mental strength to believe if you miss a chance, or go a few games without a goal, the goal will come. If you have that you can get 25 goals or more.feedback

Jul 22 2017

The main reason Jose bought Lukaku is for goals and to turn all those draws at Old Trafford into wins. There will be a lot of pressure and scrutiny on him but those around him also need to step up and score more. Juan Mata did his fair share, but [Anthony] Martial, Marcus [Rashford] and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan have got to get double figures. So although the most pressure will be on Lukaku, the onus is on the whole team.feedback

Jul 22 2017

You can only tell in the games whether a player has what it takes. There are some games where you are trying to break a side down – like when United played Burnley last season – and you hear the groans in the stadium after the first misplaced pass or chance. That is what you have to deal with.feedback

Jul 18 2017

I can see United and City definitely contending for the league. It's Jose's second season with United. Last season they had the best squad and I think this year they've got the best squad again. They haven't necessarily got the best XI, but their strength in depth is huge.feedback

Jul 18 2017

And City; towards the end of the season away at Watford they had Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne. That front five is scary…and Raheem Sterling wasn't even on the pitch.feedback

Jul 18 2017 - Champions League

It's Guardiola's second season in the Premier League, too, so they will be really strong. It'll be interesting to see how Chelsea cope with the Champions League, but I can definitely see United and City contending for the title.feedback

Jul 17 2017

It can be a boost for all the players. It not only excites the fans but also the players, when a new player comes in.feedback

Jul 17 2017

And if he misses a chance, the next one that comes along he needs to put it away because, as a centre-forward at United, you're under scrutiny all the time. I think he will score goals, but you need goals from all over the park.feedback

Jul 17 2017 - Manchester United

I've seen a bit of [Alvaro] Morata. I've seen more of Lukaku. The pluses with Lukaku are obviously that he's played in the Premier League and Jose has worked with him before, and he's got friends. He's friends with Paul Pogba, and that makes the transition that bit easier.feedback

Jul 17 2017

If he comes, then the likes of Marcus Rashford, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial have to step it up.feedback

Jun 26 2017

It is whether he can put up with not being first choice or whether he can develop his game which I had to around the same age, not being certain to play every game, but playing 25-30 games and contributing.feedback

Jun 26 2017

If Wayne can do that then I don't see why he can't still be at the club.feedback

Jun 21 2017

How's my day going? It's going well. I've just backed the winner of the first race, because Sir Alex Ferguson tipped him to me.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Manchester United

Pogba today was… you've got to be excited if you're a Man United fan. Can't wait for next season if he's going to play like that. Tonight he had everything.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Manchester United

Of course he could have done better but he's come from Juventus where they win the league every year and he's in a team that was inconsistent throughout the season. If United hit the ground running next year, you will see a new and improved Pogba.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Manchester United

It's just consistency. You never knew what you were going to get from him. But overall, I was happy with his first season.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Manchester United

He hit the crossbar like nine or 10 times for United last season. If he can turn them into goals, that's another area he needs to improve.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - UEFA

Two or three minutes to go, we get a corner in front of our own fans. One of them just rose and that gave us an extra push to score that goal. We managed to score from the corner and, after that, there was only going to be one winner.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Portugal

Well obviously I played with Cristiano so I'm going to go with Cristiano. But they're both two great players. We're living in an era where you're seeing true legends at their best going head-to-head each season. It's special to see but Cristiano has done it in Portugal, he's obviously done it in England and he's done it in La Liga and also on the national front with Portugal as well.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Portugal

I think Cristiano for me just pips it, but only just.feedback

May 15 2017 - Manchester United

He needs to replace Michael Carrick. [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic is going to be out for a year. I think he needs a centre forward. Don't know what's going to happen with Wayne [Rooney]. I think he probably needs four or five players. He'd won everywhere he'd gone. Not only the effect on the pitch but off the pitch as well. You can just feel that Sanchez would give his team-mates a lift.feedback

May 06 2017

When my life as a player and then coach at United came to an end last summer...I made the decision to see a psychiatrist to learn how best to cope and some of the suggestions he made served me well in adapting to a new life outside of United.feedback

May 06 2017 - Manchester United

Institutionalised is a description I would apply to my life as a footballer at Manchester United. I had been there from the age of 14 to 42, and my life had been so distinctively shaped by the rhythm of life at Old Trafford that I realised, when it was coming to the end last year, I had to make some reparations for the change. Aaron Lennon's story has made mental health of footballers an issue again and I think that for his sake and everyone else in the game it is important to be open about how we feel as professionals, and how we cope with stress.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - Manchester United

There is not a lot wrong with the team, the performances are good and defensively we look strong. It is just that concentration in front of goal and just that over-reliance, really, on Ibrahimovic. He is the centre-forward, but you need goals to come from everywhere, be it the wide men, midfielders, or even the defenders chipping in at set-pieces. Jesse is perhaps one of the players who needs to score more goals; as an attacking player you need to be heading for double figures and also 10, 12, 15 assists.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - Manchester United

Jesse is that type of player who can do that, now he needs to concentrate on his football and make sure he puts the regular, consistent performances in.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Champions League

They're creating a lot of chances but we're missing goals. It's hard to judge now. We can do that at the end of the season. I think most United fans would be happy at the start of the season if we were getting a trophy and Champions League football. They're still on course to do that. It will be tough to get into the top four but we have a good chance of winning the Europa League. The end of the season would be a good time to judge.feedback

Apr 08 2017

I think, the five or six of us coming through - it doesn't happen always. Its pretty unique. We've always had players coming through but it's been the odd one every now and again. Regarding business, football is a short career. So we started planning for after football around our early thirties. We were always planning on what we would do after football. We're still involved in it (football), yes. But business has really took over our lives, especially the hospitality business.feedback

Apr 08 2017

The only one I can really say is Swansea. I feel like I've done my apprenticeship with two years of brilliant education under Louis. If the right club and the right chairman comes along, I'll be ready. I'd rather go into a decent League One or Championship team, who've got the right ideas and the right aspirations, than a Premier League team who haven't. It frustrates me when you hear people say, You can't just expect to walk into any job. Well, I think it works against us actually. It can stop you getting jobs. It can hinder, not help. They see the player rather than the coach.feedback

Apr 08 2017

That's understandable, because I was playing for so long and only coached for two years. But I've been preparing for it for 10 years, because I started my badges at 30. It really doesn't matter to me where. It's a minefield out there, though. You see Warren Joyce, who I worked with for so long. Four months in a job [at Wigan Athletic] - and he's a very good coach. Very easily your reputation can be ruined in that first job.feedback

Apr 08 2017

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. [Paul] 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.feedback

Apr 08 2017

My target was always to get double figures and then 15 assists. That's 25 goals. If Becks is doing the same, you've got a lot there.feedback

Apr 08 2017

Sir Alex Ferguson would say 'this is what I expect from you'. It put pressure on but you knew what the expectations were. If you were left out, you'd know why.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Manchester United

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 goalscorers. That's what United need to get back.feedback

Apr 08 2017

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.feedback

Apr 08 2017

That's how the United teams I played in were like. I'd chip in with seven or eight, [David Beckham] Becks would, [Paul Scholes] Scholesy would. Four centre forwards would. The centre halves. Denis Irwin too. The goals came from everywhere.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I think he's done okay. He had a slow start and it is always difficult. If you look at Jose's career so far, he has always dealt with similar kind of teams - Porto, Chelsea, Inter.feedback

Mar 10 2017

He's still a young player and second seasons can be really difficult. You've seen it with so many young players. I think he is still exciting and he can be a match winner still. He's just been inconsistent. I like him and would pick him in my team. He will only get better.feedback

Mar 10 2017

There needs to be someone at a club, be it a director of football or chief executive, who knows the club and its recruitment process. Someone who can spot an 'Arsenal' player or 'Manchester United' player because they are different.feedback

Mar 09 2017

I have never seen a 23-year-old midfield player dominate games for a whole season.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Manchester United

They need to bring players in who'll score goals, and one goalscorer who's going to get 20-plus.feedback

Mar 06 2017

United need goals. All the teams I played in there were goals from everywhere.feedback

Mar 06 2017

Sometimes you'd rely on a centre-forward for a season, but more often than not you had midfielders, even defenders, wingers and obviously the forwards all contributing.feedback

Dec 03 2013

I don't really see myself as 40. I just see myself as a football player in a team. And I have always said I am lucky because I am playing with good players. Of course, you have got to keep yourself fit. But I am enjoying it. I am enjoying it more than ever.feedback
