Man Utd icon Giggs excited about China return

Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs is looking forward to their tour clash with Shanghai Shenhua.

Giggs, who scored his only career hat-trick on his last visit to China in 2009, has been to the country on numerous occasions and is still amazed by the unwavering support the Reds receive from fans in Asia.

"The players love coming to China because we know the fan base we have in the country. The fans are fanatical and it's a great chance to see them first hand," Giggs told

"They support us throughout the year and to see them at the games and at training as well will be great.

"Hopefully the Chevrolet China Cup will be a good match and the fans will come and support us and enjoy themselves."
