When asked by former LFC defender Jamie Carragher if he was worried his former team would have to wait as long as Liverpool to the claim the title again, Giggs said: ‘Yes, 100 per cent. It could be 15, 20 years before you know it, especially if (Jurgen) Klopp and (Pep) Guardiola stick around.
‘They have got the resources and the players so we have Liverpool to look at where the last time when they won it in 1990 they thought we’ll win it again soon.
‘Even Klopp took four and a half years for him to win it – it takes a long time. You have to think about what Klopp did.

‘He improved the team every season or won a trophy like the Champions League and then you saw the improvement so the pressure was off a little bit.
‘Every manager and signing is seen as that he will win us the league and it’s not like that.’
Giggs went on to speak about the long-standing rivalry between Liverpool, saying the best feeling was leaving Anfield after a win.
He told the Greatest Game Podcast: ‘The best feeling I always had was leaving Anfield after winning even if Liverpool weren’t the best side at the time.
