Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has hit back at the recent criticism of Zlatan Ibrahimovic aimed at the iconic class of ’92.
Ibrahimovic, 37, claimed in an interview with the Daily Mail that Giggs and fellow pundits like Gary Neville and Paul Scholes who starred under the regime of Sir Alex Ferguson – fuelled the media criticism of Paul Pogba.
The LA Galaxy striker insists that the club legends opinions were just complaints and not constructive, citing a belief that Pogba’s decision to leave Old Trafford to sign for Juventus on a free in 2012 created somewhat of a personal vendetta.
However, Giggs, who featured a record 963 appearances for United between 1991 and 2014 hit back at the views of the Swedish superstar.
“Only Nicky [Butt] is connected with the club now but when you play over 2,000 games between us, we are going to have an opinion,” Giggs said, as per The Guardian.
“Sometimes it’s positive, sometimes negative, but it doesn’t have an effect on results.
“We are supporters. That’s what football is about, having different opinions. But he [Ibrahimovic] obviously knows more about the club than us.”
