London, Oct : Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs has said that the players have no excuse for their worst start to a season for 24 years.
According to the Mirror, reigning champions United will be bidding to avoid a third straight Premier League defeat for the first time in 12 years when they travel to Sunderland this weekend.
Back-to-back defeats to neighbours Manchester City and at home to West Brom have piled the pressure on Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor David Moyes, the report said.
Moyes saw his players take a step in the right direction with a creditable 1-1 draw away to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday, the report added.
Veteran midfielder Giggs, making a record-breaking 145th appearance in Europe’s elite competition, said United must now go on a sustained winning run and show just why they are the Premier League champions, the report further said.
He also said that it had been a weird season as Manchester City had also been beaten twice. (ANI)
