Ole Gunner Solskjaer has been told to follow Jurgen Klopp’s example and achieve “gradual improvement” at Manchester United .
Red Devils legend Ryan Giggs reckons his former team-mate cannot expect to turn things around overnight at Old Trafford.
He instead believes he should take heed from the success of Klopp at arch rivals Liverpool .
The German took over at Anfield in October 2015 and the club went on to finish the season eighth in the Premier League table.
But they rebuilt to reach the top four in the next two seasons before emerging as title contenders and Champions League winners last season.
Giggs now believes United must look to do similar under Solskjaer and reckons they have the young players at the club capable of making it happen.
Giggs told the Evening Standard : “[Jurgen] Klopp wasn’t brilliant overnight, but I think what you’ve seen from Klopp is improvement every year.
“It was a gradual improvement and I think as a United fan that’s what you want to see. Not saying we’re going to win the league this year, but if you start seeing improvements and a shift of culture with players you want to go and watch.
“We all want Ole to be successful, but even if he isn’t, I think he will leave the club in a better state than when he took over, which in itself is a job.
“In two or three years’ time some of these players are going to be top, top players. They are already good players, but in a few years they will be top players.
“Whether Ole is going to be successful in that time I don’t know, but introducing players like [Mason] Greenwood and [Tahith] Chong will stand the club in good stead.”
