Wales manager Ryan Giggs wants Manchester United to show strength amid adversity
‘I was there on Monday as a United fan,’ Giggs said.
‘It’s time for the fans to stick together, get behind the club, team and manager.
‘It’s a tough time but we’ve had tough times before and got through it.’
Giggs, who spent a year as assistant manager to Louis van Gaal in the Old Trafford dugout, had previously suggested Mourinho did not fit the mould of a United manager.
He said: ‘They went for a winner, in Jose, a win-at-all-costs type of manager. Is Jose a typical Manchester United manager? Probably not, but United were in a situation of “how quickly can we get back to the top?”‘
