Ryan Giggs hopes to see the likes of Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford entertain Manchester United supporters next season.

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has called on his former club's flair players to offer more in an attacking sense next season.

The Red Devils were often criticised for their safety-first approach this term, leaving supporters particularly frustrated as they finished the campaign troph-less.

Giggs now wants Jose Mourinho to remove the shackles from the likes of Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford so that those in the stands are left entertained.

Speaking to ESPN, the Wales manager said: "First of all, I was a Manchester United fan [growing up]. I used to climb over the fence when I was a seven, eight-year-old, get the match bus to Old Trafford.

"Right from when I can remember, I used to go to Old Trafford and then, fast-forward to 17, 18, I played for the first team. I understand how the club works, what the fans want, because I was a fan.

"I was also a player who wanted to excite the crowd, to get the fans on their feet. I want to see exciting players. I want to see Rashford, I want to see Martial, I want to see Pogba try things. That's what I tried to do when I was playing."

United scored 68 goals in the Premier League in Mourinho's second season in charge - 38 fewer than champions Manchester City.
