Ryan Giggs believes Jose Mourinho can turn things around at Manchester United, insisting that sacking him would not change the club’s fortunes.
A 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace at Old Trafford at the weekend has left United seventh in the Premier League table, 14 points behind leaders Manchester City and seven behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
United have endured a frustratingly inconsistent season, losing four and drawing three of their opening 13 games, and there have been suggestions that the club should potentially look to change the man in the dugout.
Wales boss Giggs, however, believes that there is no need to seek an alternative and has backed Mourinho to recover the situation.
“I don’t see why changing the manager at this stage will change anything,” Giggs told Sky Sports News.
“Everyone knows what a successful manager he’s been over the years. I believe that bit of stability we’ve not had over the years – we need to stick with him.
“But results also need to change. I think we’ve got the manager, the players to do that.”
