Giggs pleased with Man Utd performance for Community Shield win

Manchester United player-coach Ryan Giggs was delighted with their performance against Wigan Athletic in their Community Shield triumph.

United claimed just two wins in pre-season before today, conceding 13 goals in seven games, and Giggs was pleased with the solidity on display against the Latics.

"It was a very professional performance," he said.

"We were a bit disappointed pre-season, letting a few goals in, so the main objective was to get a clean sheet. We wanted to do that as a team. Work hard, get behind the ball and I think we did that."

He added: "We just know we've got good players in the team. It's always hard when you're champions, you've got to reproduce the form that you showed last year and I hope we do that."
