Ryan Giggs has stood up for the class of ’92 (Picture: Getty) Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs sarcastically hit back at Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the Swede’s criticism of the Class of ’92. The LA Galaxy forward said the group were ‘always complaining and criticising’ during his 18 months at Old Trafford. Paul Scholes and Gary Neville have been particularly scathing of their former club since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure but have been quietened by the good results and renewed feel-good factor since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge. But Giggs insists the group of former players are entitled to their opinions and sarcastically hit back at Ibrahimovic by claiming the Swede ‘knows more about the club than us’. Ibrahimovic criticised the class of ’92 (Picture: Getty) ‘Only Nicky [Butt] is connected with the club now, but when you play over 2000 games [3,450 in total] between us, we are going to have an opinion,’ said Wales boss Giggs. ‘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.’ [metro-tag-post-strip] Giggs’ Wales side have been training at United’s Carrington base this week as they prepare for a friendly against Trinidad & Tobago. Aaron Ramsey is expected to miss the clash with a thigh injury.

SKOUTED is the new revolutionary tool that could help clubs inside and outside of the Premier League find the next big thing. The free app, co-created by ex Manchester United footballer Febian Brandy, is designed to put footballers in the shop window. Skouted is a new app that will revolutionise how scouts work HOW IT WORKS Players can build up a profile that includes video clips of them in action. While scouts will be able to search the Skouted database featuring hundreds of players that can be filtered down to position, player style and even their location. But it won’t be all professional… in fact, the Skouted’s founders hope they will be able to create a social media community for the football community. Brandy created the app with Loughborough University student and rugby player Keita Orelaja, entrepreneur Raj Sharma and CTO Harjot Singh. “At the moment there is a big gap between players and clubs,” Orelaja told SunSport. “There’s a high number of talented players that can be missed by clubs and scouts due to time or geographical location. “So that means a lot of players aren’t able to play at the level that their talent will allow them. “With Skouted we hope to bridge that gap, where players can come on the platform, create a detailed profile of themselves and can upload highlights of their playing career. “Our verified registered scouts, all the way from Premier League down to non-league, British universities and even American colleges will be able to search for talent through key filters. “Location, position, playing style, etc. A drop down list of players that match their search criteria will show.” [quote credit=”Skouted co-founder, Keita Orelaja”]With Skouted we hope to bridge that gap, where players can come on the platform, create a detailed profile of themselves and can upload highlights of their playing career.”[/quote] FEBIEN BRANDY’S VIEW Brandy is adamant that this is what the game needs at this time, citing his own personal experience in the youth set up at the Red Devils. “My time at Manchester United, I was there from the age of eight to about 21, so you can imagine how many players I saw come and go,” he said. “For me, I was quite fortunate to be there for as long as I was. “But I saw players there that might not have had the ability to play for Manchester United, but they could’ve gone to a club like a Bury, Blackburn or Oldham. “They just didn’t have the connection then to reach those teams.

Ryan Giggs has hit back at Zlatan Ibrahimovic over his criticism of the Class of 92 by insisting players with ‘over 2,000 games between us’ are entitled to have an opinion about Manchester United. Former Red Devils striker Ibrahimovic claimed in a newspaper interview that the ongoing loyalty of Giggs and other pundits like Gary Neville and Paul Scholes to Sir Alex Ferguson has fuelled criticism of Paul Pogba. Giggs responded to Ibrahimovic’s criticism Ibrahimovic told the Daily Mirror that the criticism of Pogba dated back to his decision to walk away from Old Trafford and sign for Juventus in 2012 when Ferguson was still United manager. “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,” said Wales manager Giggs, who made a record 963 appearances for United between 1991 and 2014. “Sometimes it’s positive, sometimes negative, but it doesn’t have an effect on results. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] “We are supporters. That’s what football is about, having different opinions. “But he (Ibrahimovic) obviously knows more about the club than us.” Giggs and his former Class of 92 team-mates – Neville, Scholes, Butt, David Beckham and Phil Neville – actually played a combined total of 3,450 games during the most successful period in United’s history. Ibrahimovic spent the 2016/17 season at Man United Ibrahimovic represented United on 53 occasions after being signed by Jose Mourinho in the summer of 2016, before later joining LA Galaxy two years later. Giggs was also asked about the possibility of Manchester City trumping the United side of which he was a member of in 1999. United won the Treble of Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup that year but City remain on course for an unprecedented quadruple.

City survived an FA Cup quarter-final scare at Swansea on Saturday to win 3-2 after being 2-0 down. “I’ve got enough to worry about, please don’t bring that up.” Giggs said. City’s charge towards the quadruple continues “They’re a fantastic team, aren’t they? “They’ve already got one and United going out of the FA Cup makes it a little bit easier for them. “They’ve got a long way to go but just like us in the treble, you need a lot of things to go for you. That bit of luck, which they had at the weekend. “But they are a brilliant team.
