Manchester United must stick by Jose Mourinho despite a widening gap from the top four, says Ryan Giggs. Ryan Giggs has backed Jose Mourinho to turn Manchester Uniteds season around and says sacking him will not change anything.
Mourinhos challenge to his players to be in the top four by 2019 may already be over after drawing at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday, according to Giggs.
“If anyone doubts anything about Manchester United and commitment and desire, to see Lindelof, who had obviously injured himself, actually keeping pace with Zaha and [Jordan] Ayew, that would tell you more,” Hodgson told reporters.
The former United captain believes the club “needed to win every game” to achieve that, but has urged the clubs hierarchy to keep Mourinho in charge in order to bring back stability.
Last week, Jose Mourinho challenged his Manchester United side to surge into the top four by the start of 2019 – but their charge immediately stalled with a goalless draw at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
