While there can be no good wishes expressed tomorrow when United visit Spurs in an eagerly-anticipated Barclays Premier League duel, overall Giggs has high hopes for the 23-year-old.
"Gareth is brilliant," said Giggs. "He has so much to his game and over the last season or so he has improved a lot.
"He is not just a left winger. He can play in various positions. I have seen him play up front for Wales. I have seen him play off the front and on the right.
"He is such an exciting player, but more than that, he has a good attitude as well.
"He can go far in the game. And whilst I hope he has an off-day this weekend, as a fellow Welshman I hope it is to the very top."
