​Giggs: Man Utd can learn lesson from Liverpool to win Premier League

first_imgManchester United legend Ryan Giggs thinks that the Red Devils can learn a lesson or two from Liverpool’s last season.The Reds lacked a 30-goal striker last season but still managed to score a respectable total of 78 goals in the league.Giggs says that if United are serious about winning the title next season, then they should either sign a 30-goal striker or follow in the footsteps of their arch-rivals.”There was a lot of positives from last year, a lot of things that can be worked on,” Giggs said on Sky Sports.”But ultimately when you want to win the league, you have to have goals.”You have to have a 30-goal a season man or you have to be pitching in like Liverpool did. “They had everyone scoring from midfielders, to centre-forwards. So, you need that all-round package.”last_img
