Ryan Giggs on Champions League boost
Ryan Giggs believes United qualifying for the Champions League will make all the difference in the transfer window.
“It’s huge for attracting players,” Giggs told Premier League Productions. “Some players will choose clubs that are in the Champions League.
“And [it helps] in holding on to some players too. It’s just huge.
“Eventually when we get crowds back, Champions League nights at Old Trafford are special.
“Ole’s beginning to mould a team which is exciting. He said that they were running out of legs a little bit.
“After lockdown, he’s played the same team more or less, which he had to because they’re on such a good run – so it was hard to chop and change.
“They need three players I would say that can go into the starting XI, even to challenge for the league and the Champions League next year.”
