Man Utd icon Giggs: Mind games won't work on me

Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs says he doesn't pay attention to managerial mind games.

Giggs insists outside pressure never gets to him.

"They don't affect me. When I go out onto the pitch I'm fully concentrated on my performance. I'm not thinking about what another player or manager has said," said Giggs.

"I think the whole mind games issue is just a bit of fun for the press, who like to blow everything up. It's part of the title race these days and I think a lot of fans also enjoy the banter. As players, you try to distance yourself from it."
