Ryan Giggs slams Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata
According to Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas, Ryan Giggs has slammed Manchester United’s attackers for their poor form.
Manchester United hit the framework many a times, but failed to find the back of the net in their goalless draw against Chelsea earlier in the week, in what was regarded as a much-improved performance by Louis van Gaal’s side, which has now gone eight straight matches without a win.
And according to Sky pundit Nicholas, the improved performance was largely due to the assistant manager Ryan Giggs getting the likes of Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata ‘angry’.
“Giggs stormed off after the Stoke defeat with a furious look on his face and I think he could have played a part in the improved display against Chelsea,” said the Sky pundit.
“I think he’s gone to the attack-minded players and said ‘Come on, it’s time you guys started delivering,” he told Sky Sports.
“‘The defence has been doing okay but we need you to start performing – Rooney, Martial, and Mata, we need more from you’, and that maybe marked the improvement on Monday.”
“I’m hoping Ryan is getting them angry and maybe that’s just what they need.”
Manchester United host Swansea on Saturday and will be keen to end an eight-game winless run against the Welsh side.
