Giggs Backs New Boys to Shine

Giggs Backs New Boys to Shine

Veteran Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has praised the clubs trio of summer signings, and has backed them to help the team achieve even more in the future.

Talking to Sky Sports, the 33 year old said how he believed the new additions, along with the current crop of players at Old Trafford could hopefully propel the team to further success.

'I think people could see the promise this team had, but we had to prove how good we are. We have done that now, and hopefully it gives us the platform to go on and win more trophies."

The 9-time Premiership champion admitted that seeing the youngsters such as Rooney and Ronaldo pick up their first championship medal, brought back memories of 1993 when he won his first premiership title.

'It's a relatively young squad that we have and there aren't too many players that have won it before. It's always nice for the younger lads, like Wayne and Cristiano, but also for the other lads who have joined recently - Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra, Ji-sung Park. That was one of the first things I thought about when I knew we had won the title, seeing the look on their faces. I know how I felt when I won my first league - it was brilliant."

He went on to say that this experience could rub-off on the newcomers, as well as the players who have already won it, boosting their confidence for the new campaign.

'Hopefully it gives the players who have not won the league before the confidence to go out next year knowing that they can do it again. The experience of having done it before will be a real asset for those players, because you know how to deal with certain games and the twists and turns of a title race.'

He went on to say that this drive and passion to win things at this historic clubs was one of the main reasons that Utd are able convince what many people believe to be the two most exciting prospects in world football, as well as a defensive midfielder with enough experience in winning things in Germany to virtually choose which team to play for.

'The one thing the manager offers any player that comes here is trophies."

It`s great to see Giggsy backing the new signings, and with his immense experience and stature at the club, his words can only act as inspiration for the newcomers, and give the confidence to shine at this club.

I'd bet on Anderson right now. He's more talented and less prone to dribbling far too much.
