Giggs: We Must Carry On!

Giggs: We Must Carry On!

Manchester United are special. Of course you hear it from biased fans, new signings who wish to endeavour themselves to the fans... but when someone who's served this club for two decades says it you must seriously consider his words.

And Ryan Giggs is aware that United players, himself included, have a duty towards their fans, a duty born out of their history.

'If you are representing Manchester United, you have to play in the right manner, excite supporters and wherever you go, get people off their seats. That has got to go on as that is one of the things that sets this club apart. You never stand still. It always goes forward.

'There's Juventus and Barcelona but Manchester United always seemed to have that much more support and seem that much more special.

'Of course that is down to history and what Sir Matt did.'


Giggs was a special talent, that's clear. But we can ask the question: how many clubs are there in the world which's biggest legend would travel to a foreign country to see a 14-year-old boy play? Or, to put it differently, which club can boast a man like Matt Busby?

'Sir Bobby saw me at The Cliff, United's old training ground, when I was 14. He also watched David Beckham and Paul Scholes.

'When I played in a tournament in Switzerland, Sir Matt travelled out to watch it. You could see the love and affection for him.'

'That has an effect on you because these are great people.

'They are legends who don't have to do that sort of thing but they enjoy it. They want to do it and that's been ingrained in them from a young age.'
