Jamie Carragher claims Ryan Giggs may already have taken control at Manchester United

Carra's stirring the pot

Jamie Carragher could be onto something here.

Anyone who witnessed Manchester United’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea on Monday night would have been thinking just one thing; where the hell was this attacking football all season?

The home side hit the woodwork twice in the first half and probably deserved a goal over the course of the 90 minutes.

The game was in stark contrast to the limp and insipid performances over the last month or so, and Jamie Carragher feels that Ryan Giggs could now be calling the shots at Old Trafford after a most un-Louis-van-Gaalish performance.

Writing in his Daily Mail column this afternoon, the ex-Liverpool defender feels the Manchester United team that faced Chelsea looked very much like  they were Giggs-inspired

“If I hadn’t read a paper or watched television in the last 48 hours, I’d have thought it was Ryan Giggs’s first game in charge.

“I’m not saying he was responsible for tactics but this was not a typical Louis van Gaal performance from Manchester United. This looked like the team of old with the way they attacked and pressed.”
