Jurgen Klopp helped Liverpool to a domestic top-flight title triumph for the first time in 30 years last season.

The rivalry between the reigning champions and Ryan Giggs former employers continue to exit despite the Old Trafford outfit have trailed in the past few years.

Giggs believes if Klopp continue to manage Liverpool, Manchester United could be waiting even longer before taking their place back on the perch.

United last won the Premier League title in 2011, meaning if they finish anywhere but the top spot in the table at the conclusion of the current campaign, they will have gone a decade since the trophy was lifted at Old Trafford.

Speaking to former LFC defender Jamie Carragher for his Greatest Game podcast, Giggs admitted his fears of Man United having to wait another 10 years and even having to sit out almost as long as their bitter rivals did.

"100% it could (be 10 years until United win the title again). It could be 15 or 20 years before you know it," he said.

"Especially if Klopp and Guardiola stick around, they’ve got the resources and obviously the players.

"I think we have got Liverpool to look at, the last time they won it, they thought “we’ll win it again soon." says Giggs.

"Even Klopp, it took four-and-a-half years to win it, it takes a long time. I think what Klopp did, he improved every season or won a trophy, won the Champions League, you see that improvement so the pressure is off a little bit.

"Whereas every manager, every signing is seen as "he'll win us the league” but it’s not like that."
