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

Giggs? You Must Be Joking!

In the wake of Aaron Ramsey's horrible injury - hopefully he'll make a quick and full recovery, by the way - Ryan Giggs is considering returning to the Wales team, in order to fill the creative gap in midfield.

Giggs told reporters that he would have to think about it if a call-up ever came but he did not rule out returning to help out in emergency. But Sir Alex believes it is unlikely.

'Ryan? You must be joking. I can't see it, it must have been a weak moment for Ryan. I can't see that happening.'

Giggs retired from international football in 2007 and Fergie happens to believe it helped him lengthening his career at club level. So he would be none too pleased to see his vice-captain exposing himself to gruelling trips to faraway countries during the international breaks again.

Giggs himself later clarified his comments, saying that he did not wish to imply that he is desperate to return to the international fold.

'I just said I wouldn't rule it out but it was just a question put to me.

'I just said if there was ever an emergency or a game that they needed me I would obviously think about it but I've got no immediate plans on coming back and playing regularly.'

At the age of 36 I don't think so.
