Ryan Giggs has conceded that Manchester City have enjoyed an “outstanding” season.
Manchester City currently hold a 13-point advantage at the top of the Premier League table, having lost just once in the league all season, and have been tipped to set a new points record when they claim the title.
Giggs, who spent 24 seasons as a senior player at Old Trafford, admitted that City deserve plaudits but also thinks that United will have enjoyed a “successful” season if they end the campaign as runners-up.
“City have been fantastic,” the Wales manager told Sports Mole at the Laureus World Sports Awards. “I think if United come second and win an FA Cup or do well in the Champions League it will be a successful season.
“It’s a step up from sixth last year, but City have been outstanding. [United need to] do well this year, win a trophy, come second, and then challenge next year.”
