Giggs convinced young Man Utd team can dominate Europe for years

Ryan Giggs says the current Manchester United team are capable of dominating Europe for years.

Giggs points to the development of a team which were dumped out of the group stages only four years ago to the world beaters of today as an example of the progress the club has made to be on the threshold of greatness.

He said: "At the time, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney had just come to the club and they hadn't matured into the players they are now. They are world-class players now.

"Together with the other players the manager has brought in, we've got better and better.

"The key with a new team is to win that first trophy. We beat Wigan in the Carling Cup Final in 2006 and went from strength to strength.

"The age of the team is relatively young if you take out me, Edwin van der Sar, Gary Neville and Scholesy.

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