'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ryan 'Ole Gunnar' Giggs

Ryan Giggs, taking us back to the glorious old days of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, came off the bench to seal a very important victory on Sunday. He aims to do the same in Moscow.

The Welshman who's come in for a lot of stick this season (from myself, too) concedes he's unlikely to start in the Champions League final against Chelsea but does not really mind.

'I know I'm not guaranteed a starting place these days,' said Giggs. 'But it's all about the squad. The squad won it in 1999, when Sheringham and Solskjaer came on and scored the goals.

'As a player you just have to come to terms with the fact you won't start every game. I came off the bench at Wigan and scored, so I did my bit.

'If you're not playing, you can't just sit there and sulk. When you get on the pitch you have to try to prove to the manager he should have started with you.

'That's the determination that runs right through our squad. I want to play but if I don't, then so be it. It's no longer about 14 or 15 players. There's a bigger picture.'


Wouldn't it be a dream scenario if Giggs came off the bench to score the second, decisive goal after Scholes' opener?
