Giggs confident Van Gaal will back Man Utd kids

Manchester United No2 Ryan Giggs insists manager Louis van Gaal will support their youth system.

Giggs has told the younger players that Van Gaal's appointment has given them a golden opportunity to make the breakthrough.

And he pointed to the former Ajax, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich coach's track record as the reason why.

Giggs told the Manchester Evening News: "It's Louis's philosophy to play young players.

"To give Xavi, Iniesta, Muller, Kluivert, Seedorf a chance. It's his track record - he develops young players and gives them a chance.

"I think he has been impressed by the quality of the young players as well. It's a chance for them. I always say if you've got a chance to play for Manchester United you've got to take it.

"That's what I did. That's what a lot of others have done."
