Giggs: Man Utd youngsters have right stuff

Ryan Giggs is confident his young Manchester United teammates have the winning mentality needed to bring more success to Old Trafford.

"I think that's the biggest challenge," he told Inside United magazine.

"To be fair, the young lads rose to the challenge of defending the Premier League title last season. For many of them that had been their first time as champions, and it's much harder to defend it because everybody always wants to beat the best. They did that, and then went on to win the Champions League as well."

Ten league titles and two Champions League crowns are the pride of Giggs' honours. He's won enough to know that the challenge only gets more difficult.

"It does get tougher, because you've got to keep that desire and that hunger in order to succeed," he added. "I'm sure all the young lads have that, but us older ones and the manager will stress it to them anyway. They're all good lads, they all wanted to win trophies when they came here, and they want to win more now. There won't be a problem there."
