Ryan Giggs Outlines What Would Define Progress for United this Season

It obviously appears that Manchester United are progressing in year two of the Jose Mourinho era, but it’s still a long season yet. The longest tenured former player in club history, Ryan Giggs, has defined what would constitute another step forward for the club.

Last season Mourinho became the first United manager in club history to claim a trophy in his first season at Old Trafford. He actually won three- EFL Cup, Community Shield and Europa League. However, United’s first Red Devils teams only finished sixth in the Premier League table.

This year, United are currently in second place, a spot they have occupied pretty much the whole season. If they can beat Sevilla in a couple weeks, they’ll advance to the UEFA Champions League Quarterfinals.


They’ve also progressed to the sixth round of the FA Cup.

Ryan Giggs spoke in Monaco as part of his role as ambassador for Laureus.

“They’re looking good. If they secure top four, if they have a good run in the Champions League and win the FA Cup, it’s a step forward again from last year,” the Welshman and highly decorated former United winger said.

“I think everyone recognises how difficult it is with City performing so well this year. I think you’ve got to do as well as [you can] this year, try and win a trophy, get in the Champions League and then build from that going on to next year.”

“Obviously every United fan will be hoping that we challenge for the league a little better than we did this year.”
