​Man Utd legend Giggs admits he wants Wales to emulate Liverpool

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs hopes that his Wales team can emulate the recent performances and results of Liverpool.

The Reds are the runaway Premier League leaders this season, while they also won the UEFA Champions League last term.

And Wales manager Giggs hopes that his young team can showcase a little of that quality and tenacity embodied by Jurgen Klopp's team.

"With the obvious pause in the season because of Covid-19, I think there's a lot of questions still to be answered," Giggs said, per Sky Sports News.

"But I think what we have seen this year is Liverpool are a fantastic team, managed by a great coach Jurgen Klopp and, it pains me to say it as a United fan, but they have been fantastic this season.

"Obviously they'll go on and, whatever way it is, they'll win the league and deserve it.

"They've had two brilliant seasons actually, last year pushing Man City all the way. They're a great team to watch.

"There were certain things that I've taken out of the way that Liverpool play, and taking it on to the way that I want to do with Wales.

"Hopefully United will bridge that gap and catch them up. But you have to give credit where credit is due and Liverpool have been fantastic this season."
