Ryan Giggs: Players to blame for poor start by Manchester United

Updated: 04 October 2013 15:45 IST

Giggs says, "You are going to miss someone like that (Ferguson). But I don't think that is an excuse when individuals aren't playing as well as they can. We are not playing well as a team.

Ryan Giggs says there is no excuse for Manchester United's poor start to the season and insists the players, not manager David Moyes, are to blame.

United has won only two of its opening six matches in the English Premier League - its worst start to a season in 24 years - and is 12th in the standings.

Much of the blame has fallen on Moyes, Alex Ferguson's hand-picked replacement.

Giggs says, "You are going to miss someone like that (Ferguson). But I don't think that is an excuse when individuals aren't playing as well as they can. We are not playing well as a team.

"We haven't got injury problems as we have had in the past. There is no excuse."
