Phillips Believes Teammate Could Be The Next Ryan Giggs

Blackpool striker Kevin Phillips has claimed that Tom Ince could be as good as Ryan Giggs in the future after the winger’s superb early season form attracted the attention of Manchester United.

Phillips says he already sees a bit of Giggs in the youngsters and that, with or without Blackpool, Ince will be in the Premier League next season.

“I certainly believe he can play in the Premier League. He’s matured. He is a level headed kid,” Phillips told talkSPORT.

“I believe he can go right to the top. I’d like to see him see the year out at Blackpool and if for some reason we don’t go up at the end of the season I’m sure he will go on to bigger and better things. But he is certainly good enough.

“He has got everything. He reminds me of a young Giggs. He runs at players, he has got fantastic delivery, he scores goal and, if he loses the ball, his head doesn’t go down, he gets on with it and tries to win it back. I certainly believe he will go all the way.”
