"Hopefully, it was more than our surnames sounding similar and that we're both left-footed," he smiles, adding: "I think I tend to cut inside more than Giggs does who is more of an out and out winger. I tend to work more with the full backs who bomb forward, but I suppose having players with the pace of Armand Traore and Gael Clichy, it's natural.
"Also, I like to play in the middle of the pitch a bit more than Ryan Giggs has tended to do. The youth-team players picked up on it though. All they did when we got back to training after my day off was call me 'Giggsy'!"
