United can finish in top four - Giggs

29th March 2019, 14:34 by Neil Foster

Manchester United will finish in the top four this season with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in charge, according to club legend Ryan Giggs.

Solskjaer was appointed as the Red Devils' permanent successor to Jose Mourinho on Thursday after initially being handed the reins on a temporary basis when the Portuguese tactician was sacked in December.

The Norwegian has overseen a change in fortunes since being at the helm, leading the Old Trafford outfit to fifth in the Premier League standings, just two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.

The negativity that hung over the club has been replaced by a fresh, positive vibe and the manner of United's comeback to oust Paris Saint-Germain from the Champions League augers well for the future.

Whether they can qualify for next season's Champions League only time will tell, but Giggs - a former team-mate of Solskjaer's at the Theatre of Dreams - feels they have every chance.

"I'm delighted to see he has got the job permanently," said the Wales manager. "OK, the last two games haven't gone to plan, but if you have the momentum that the team have at the moment, that's all you want.

"It won't be easy because there are some quality teams up there but, with the players they've got and the momentum, I don't see why we can't get top four."

Punters looking to use a free bet might fancy United to finish in the top four and they are next in action against Watford on Saturday.
