Man Utd ace Giggs ready to repeat '99 heroics against Arsenal

Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs hopes he can enjoy more semifinal heroics against Arsenal in tomorrow night's Champions League clash.

Giggs's FA Cup semifinal winner against the Gunners in 1999 is now the stuff of legend and the Player of the Year says: "It was a great moment for me personally and for the team. It was a massive turning point in the season that ended in the Treble.

"Arsenal are a top, top team. They always have been. Over the years they've been our biggest challengers so when you play against them you've got to raise your game.

"I will always be remembered for that celebration. I don't know if I like the picture though because people remember the celebration more than the goal!

"When you score a goal, especially an important one like that, the feelings rise up and you've got no control over yourself.

"That's what football is all about. You never know what's going to happen next. I used to say I would never do it again but you never know. If you score an important winning goal again in the last minute you might just do it."
