Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer transfer activities at Old Trafford.
Speaking to MUTV, the Wales boss said that he was pleased with the work his former team-mate is doing in building a fresh Man United squad.
Solskjaer has brought in Daniel James, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes among others evidence of this policy.
Giggs pointed out that his compatriot James is developing into a well-rounded player under the Solskjaer leadership.
“Dan's not only a talented player,” Ryan tells host Stewart Gardner, plus ex-Reds West Brown, David May, Ben Thornley and Danny Webber. “He’s a really good character and a solid lad. He wants to improve and that’s what I’ve seen over the last 18 months."
United were on an unbeaten run of 11 games, in all competitions, prior to the action being halted due to the coronavirus pandemic. It had given real cause for optimism among the supporters and Giggs is no different, feeling the club he served with such distinction is clearly heading in the right direction.
“It was a shame we had to pause the season because we were flying,” he says. “Ole started his management with United flying, then had a tough spell, and then we were on a good run. But, like I said earlier, the players he’s got in have been really impressive.
Meanwhile, Fernandes has arrived as a potential leader and the signing has drawn comparisons with Eric Cantona and Robin van Persie in the past.
“You talk about the Cantonas, the van Persies… and I’m not comparing him yet to them but he’s made other players play better and he’s given everyone a lift. I still think we need four or five players but we’re definitely going in the right direction.”
