Ryan Giggs was delighted for Manchester United teammate Robin van Persie after his brace against Wigan Athletic in their Community Shield triumph.

Giggs was quick to praise Van Persie's performance and knows the former Arsenal man will be a key player in the coming months.

"The first goal's a brilliant goal,' he said. 'It just went over my head and the timing was brilliant and it was a great start for us.

"We hope Robin can produce the form that he showed last year."
