As the years have ticked by, Giggs has taken an increasing interest in his younger team-mates.
"It's something I take seriously because once upon a time I was that 16-year-old trying to get into the first team and I got a lot of help," he said.
"The likes of Bryan Robson, Steve Bruce, Mark Hughes and Brian McClair all helped me in my early days.
"I know how I felt when they were speaking to me - I listened.
"It's something I'm comfortable with. The experienced players have a duty to help the young ones when they come in and train with the first team or make it into the squad or the team.
"It's part of being a Manchester United player."
