Ryan Giggs remains positive
Ryan Giggs is confident Manchester United can get back to winning ways sooner rather than later after a run of three straight defeats.
After claiming six victories on the bounce towards the end of last year, the Reds are yet to register a win in 2014. As United's most experienced campaigner, Giggs is refusing to panic, insisting the squad have the quality and the desire to turn things around.
"I have said over the years that the defeats and losses generate a bigger feeling than winning things. It sticks with you a lot longer. You have to react and you have to try to do something about it," said Ryan.
"There are a lot of players who have come into the club who have only known winning. It is a test of character but I am fully confident we will come through it and we will be okay.
"At United, we have never got carried away too much when we have been winning trophies and it’s also the case that you don't get carried away when you’re losing. We don't get too down about it but we want to do something about it."
And Giggs insists the older professionals have a role to play in helping the less experienced members of the group through this difficult period.
"I think it's important for the older players, who have been through this before and been through sticky patches to help the younger ones, who may only have known winning," adds the 40-year-old.
"There are good players in the dressing room. We probably haven't been playing to the best of our ability, both individually and as a team. But if we do that, we will win more matches than we lose. We are confident even though it has been a bit of a tricky spell for us. The team spirit is good within the dressing room but we need to prove what good players we are on the pitch."
