Man Utd's Giggs: Tragic for Fletcher

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is thrilled to be going to Rome for the Champions League final.

After victory at Arsenal last night, the Welshman told Sky Sports News: "It is very special. It is the biggest game you can play in at club level and all the lads are buzzing, especially after the performance tonight.

"Goals change games and I think that was the case tonight. Once we scored, Arsenal knew they needed three, and then to score again just knocked the wind out of Arsenal's sails.

"There was some great play and to do that against a very good Arsenal side was brilliant."

Darren Fletcher will play no part in the Rome showpiece after being sent off for a challenge on Cesc Fabregas.

Giggs added: "To miss a final is tragic. He has had such a good season and played so well tonight, all the lads are gutted."

Chelsea face Barcelona in the other semi-final but Giggs does not mind who comes through to face United.

"Whoever we play it is going to be tough and we need to play like we did tonight," he said.
