Ryan Giggs says Manchester City will need a ‘bit of luck’ to win the Quadruple and surpass Manchester United’s Treble in 1999
- Manchester City are currently in the hunt for four major trophies this season
- Ryan Giggs admits Man City have a chance, but will need a ‘bit of luck’ too
- Giggs won the league, FA Cup, and Champions League with Man United in 1999
Ryan Giggs admits he is worried Manchester City could win a Quadruple of trophies but insists Pep Guardiola’s side will need luck to surpass Manchester United’s Treble.
City benefited against Swansea on Saturday, staging a comeback by virtue of a disputed penalty and an offside winner, and asked about the prospects of them claiming all four trophies, Giggs said with a smile: ‘I’ve got enough to worry about, please don’t bring that up!
‘City are a fantastic team, aren’t they. They’ve already got one and United going out of the FA Cup makes it a bit easier for them.

‘But they’ve got a long way to go. Just like us in the Treble you need a lot of things to go for you, that bit of luck, which they had at the weekend. It will be interesting to see what they can achieve.’
Giggs was speaking at United’s Carrington training complex, where the Wales squad are training ahead of Wednesday night’s friendly with Trinidad and Tobago at Wrexham.
On Sunday he leads his country in a Euro 2020 qualifier against Slovakia in Cardiff. The Welsh manager has Gareth Bale to call on in Wrexham but Aaron Ramsey will miss the friendly as a precaution.
And 18-year-old Ethan Ampadu has been ruled out of both matches with a back strain. ‘He reminds me of Steven Gerrard because he’s still growing,’ said Giggs. ‘They pick up little knocks and strains.’
