Ryan Giggs's comments on Liverpool from 2011 that make Reds fans laugh now

Liverpool have returned to the top of European football last season when they won Champions League title at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, in Madrid. Jurgen Klopp's team took the prestigious European trophy for the 6th time in their history and added UEFA Super Cup this August after beating Chelsea in Istanbul. Also, Merseyside club were close to win Premier League title last season, when they lost to Manchester City by a single point a remained in the title race until the very last match-day. Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs's comments from 2011 make Liverpool fans laugh now. Former Wales international didn't believe that Red Devils could collapse like Liverpool. "Our manager is not always looking just for this season. He buys players with a view to the future, which he's done more and more over the last few years." Giggs said back in 2011 before the FA Cup match against Liverpool. "He's bought players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Anderson and Nani - all young players who have got the ability to go on and be better, and all of whom have done that. "Now we've got the next batch, the likes of Javier Hernandez, Rafael and Fabio Da Silva, Gabriel Obertan and Chris Smalling, all young players who will hopefully get better over the next few years. "The manager is experienced enough to know that we'll be challenging for the league this season and long after that because of the nucleus of the squad we have, as well as adding fresh blood, which gives everyone a lift." he'd added. Manchester United have gone into a deep crisis since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement. Red Devils haven't won a single Premier League title and failed to qualify for Champions League group stage after the last season. Also MU's transfer campaigns have changed a lot, as club have bought many players for big prices and failed to succeed with them. Liverpool, meanwhile, are currently one of the most clever clubs in the market. Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Virgil Van Dijk, Alisson, Fabinho, Andy Robertson.... All those players have been involved in team's latest successes and are part of the future that fans expect. With all these, Giggs's comments have become just another reason for Liverpool fans to laugh at their rivals. Source - LiverpoolECHO
