Man Utd fullback Rafael: Giggs great with young players

Manchester United fullback Rafael hailed fellow goalscorer Ryan Giggs after victory at QPR.

Giggs had a hand in United's opener, stealing the ball off Adel Taarabt to begin the attack which culminated in Rafael's screamer.

"It is getting boring," joked Rafael when asked to sum up Giggs. "He is an unbelievable player. Every game you see him, he works hard, scores, makes assists.

"He is just such a good player. He's the same in training; he just loves the game. He gives us experience, confidence and when you are feeling bad he comes and helps you, especially young players. Sometimes a young player finds it tough and he helps. He pulls the player aside. He spoke to me a lot when I was young. He knows it from playing for 22 years."
