Ryan Giggs has explained the big difference for Manchester United is that the ‘big players’ have started turning up.
Interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recorded his second successive win as United manager as he watched his team run out 3-1 winners against Huddersfield on Boxing Day.
The team have been much improved since Jose Mourinho was sacked last week and Giggs, who was in the stands to support his former teammate, was asked if he thought there had been a change in atmosphere in recent days.
“It was Ole’s first home game, and the positivity that came from Cardiff game, the performance and result and I think everyone was looking forward to the game,” Giggs told MUTV.
“The big players are turning up, (Paul) Pogba with the goals, David (De Gea) with a great save and Marcus (Rashford) getting better and better each game. There’s a real positivity around the place and we need that to carry on now going into the Bournemouth game.”
The Wales manager also explained that he always thought the Norwegian would be involved in coaching after closely monitoring Sir Alex Ferguson before he retired.
“He was always quietly confident believed in his own ability and even though people think he’s a nice guy but he’s got an edge to him,”
Giggs said. “He’s gradually got more experience and when he had that injury and time out he used to take notes of things Sir Alex would do so I believed he would do a good job and go in to coaching. You just need a little bit of edge to be a manager and he has that.”
