Giggs Happy With New Role

Giggs Happy With New Role

Sir Alex took the gamble on playing Ryan Giggs in the centre of midfield after the Welshman struggled in that role at Anfield. But was it a risk at all? Not for the first time Giggs, winner of 15 major trophies, has proved his worth to the club.

At 32 perhaps his days a speedy winger are coming to an end, and the cosy position in the centre-circle could prolong his career. And he looked to have developed a new dimension to his game at Cardiff as United brushed aside a spirited Wigan side to lift the Carling Cup.

Giggs: 'I played central was I was younger and am comfortable there. Maybe I am not going to win many tackles but I know how to pass the ball and run from deep.

'That's probably my strength. It is what I have always done. In midfield they are not used to people running at them as the full-backs are.

'You certainly see a lot more of the ball in that position and can have a bigger impact on the game. On the wing you rely a lot more on the service to you.

'There is obviously a shortage of midfield players here at the moment and that's why I find myself doing this job. I hope to finish the season strongly. By playing in this position probably I will get a lot more matches.

'You always try and develop your game - that's something I have always been keen to do.'
