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

Giggs Grateful For Second Chance

Ryan Giggs feared he wouldn't get the chance to play in a European Cup final again, after not performing very well in 1999.

Giggs of course provided the assist for Sheringham for the equaliser yet in terms of his football that wasn't Giggs finest hour and a half in a United shirt.

He's unlikely to spend as much on the pitch on Wednesday but he's grateful that he's at least a part of the whole thing again.

'I think when you are 26 you think you are going to be involved in finals again but at 34 you maybe think the chance is slipping away so I'm pleased to get that chance again,' Sky Sports quoted Giggs.

'Certainly I think you appreciate it a lot more - you don't play when you're 25 or 26 thinking it will be your last time but at 33 or 34 you know it will be a last chance.

'You always have that belief that we would get there again and show that winning mentality but overall I'm just happy to be playing in the final.

'I think I will be able to enjoy the experience but of course winning is the important thing.'

I will bet that Scholes will be more pleased than Giggs after missing out last time.
