Ryan Giggs has today claimed that you would be foolish to write Manchester United off following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Giggsy has just started his 20th season as a Manchester United first team player and has seen our club and manager doubted time and again.

He sends out a warning to all those that might question our future success: don’t underestimate the manager.

“The club won’t stand still because players have left,” he added. “We will continue to evolve under the manager and maintain our challenge for silverware. People are making a far bigger thing of it outside the club than we are. Obviously Cristiano was a world-class player and will be missed – but how many times have players left United and we have been written off only to prove the critics wrong? I have seen great players come and go, but the drive and determination to succeed remain the same. Don’t underestimate the manager. I have discovered over the years he always seems to come up with the answers.”
