Giggs: Man Utd team young enough to dominate for years

Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United can stay at the top of European football for many years into the future.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has already significantly strengthened his squad since the end of the campaign, spending in excess of £50million on Owen Hargreaves, Nani and Anderson.

Giggs is confident the new additions, coupled with the likes of youngsters Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo, can help the club achieve sustained success.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "It's a relatively young squad that we have and there aren't too many players that have won it before.

"It's always nice for the younger lads, like Wayne and Cristiano, but also for the other lads who have joined recently - Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra, Ji-sung Park.

"The one thing the manager offers any player that comes here is trophies.

"That was one of the first things I thought about when I knew we had won the title, seeing the look on their faces. I know how I felt when I won my first league - it was brilliant.

"I think people could see the promise this team had, but we had to prove how good we are.

"We have done that now, and hopefully it gives us the platform to go on and win more trophies.

"Hopefully, it gives the players who have not won the league before the confidence to go out next year knowing that they can do it again.

"The experience of having done it before will be a real asset for those players, because you know how to deal with certain games and the twists and turns of a title race."
