Ryan Giggs is frustrated over how Manchester United striker James Wilson has been handled over the past 12 months, according to The Times.

Wilson was loaned out to Championship leaders Brighton earlier this week, leaving United with two recognised strikers in their first-team squad.

Gary Neville has backed the decision to loan Wilson out for experience, while manager Louis van Gaal believes Wilson didn’t contribute enough in his two appearances so far this season.

According to James Ducker of The Times, assistant manager Giggs ‘has been left frustrated’ with how Wilson has been dealt with over the past year.

Giggs, who handed Wilson his debut during his spell as interim manager in 2014, ‘has been disappointed that the 19-year-old has not been given more opportunities to stake a claim for a regular place,’ writes Ducker.

Wilson, highly-rated among the United hierarchy after breaking through the youth ranks, has been handed just two Premier League starts since Van Gaal was appointed manager in the summer of 2014. According to Ducker, Giggs understands the decision to loan Wilson out for further experience, but is frustrated at the lack of chances afforded to him.
