United’s Success Will Continue Long After Me – Giggs

Posted by Keano! on May 22, 2009

Manchester United legend, Ryan Giggs who was voted as the PFA Player Of The Year recently has stated his belief that United won’t fall off the pace when the veterans like himself hang up their boots. Giggs who is 35 years of age has won it all at United and is the clubs most decorated player after sealing an 11th League title a week ago.

When talking with the media today, Giggsy was confident that the younger generation of players coming through the ranks at United will be more then able for the challenges at the business end of the League and on the European stage.

Some very notable breakthroughs have been made this season already with players like, Rafael and Fabio Da Silva, Johnny Evans, Federico Macheda, Darron Gibson and Danny Welbeck. While they have all impressed, there is still more talent behind them with Ben Foster pushing Thomasz Kuszczak and Edvin Van Der Sar, Zoran Tosic, Tom Cleverly, James Chester and Danny Drinkwater. Giggs said,

"I think the age of the team is relatively young if you take out me, Edwin, Gary Neville and Scholes," Giggs said, as quoted by AFP.

"We have proved this season that we can get to the final again so hopefully this will give us the confidence to carry on and to dominate, like we have done in our own league and to do that in Europe we got everything in place.

"Both us and Barcelona have won our leagues and performed well in the Champions League.

"It’s the dream final, two massive clubs with such history and who play football the right way, I think everybody is looking forward to it, including the players."

Giggs is expected to play a role in the Champions League final with an appearance from the subs bench, like last year in Moscow where he had a shot cleared off the line, and scored United’s last penalty in that shootout.
