Robin van Persie has sung the praises of interim boss Ryan Giggs, claiming that the talks he gives the players are on a level with Sir Alex Ferguson’s.
“I witnessed two team meetings as I came in a bit late,” Van Persie told MUTV. “The one from the last game against Sunderland, and today’s game, were incredible. They were Sir Alex-esque. He’s been brilliant and I think he came on without even warming up tonight! Am I correct? He came on without a warm-up, put in some fantastic passes and almost scored. He’s a legend and I think he shows that every day.”
