Giggs convinced Man Utd pal Fletcher would've made Team GB squad

Ryan Giggs is convinced Manchester United teammate Darren Fletcher would have made the Team GB squad if he'd been fit.

Giggs feels Fletcher would have been in with a chance too had he now not been fighting a far more serious battle, having failed to make his anticipated return to training after taking an indefinite break from the game last December.

"Fletch is concentrating on trying to get fit for United so I don't think he would have been thinking too much about missing out on this,'' said Giggs.

"Hopefully he will just start training and playing again because he is a talent and a really important player for both United and Scotland.

"But I'm sure if he had been playing regularly then Stuart (Pearce) would have had a decision to make because he definitely would have been in the reckoning."
