Scholes delighted for Man Utd pal Giggs over Team GB captaincy

Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes is delighted for teammate Ryan Giggs over the Team GB captaincy.

British coach Stuart Pearce selected Giggs and Tom Cleverley in his squad for this summer's tournament.

"From speaking to Ryan, I can tell he’s looking forward to it," explained Scholes to MUTV. "I hope they do well. I don’t see any reason why they won’t do as they’ve got a very good squad. Obviously there are other squads in it who want to win the gold medal but I’m sure Ryan will lead the team well and hopefully they’ll go a long way in the tournament.

"Ryan's been unfortunate as Wales didn't manage to qualify [for a World Cup or European Championship] whilst he was playing for them. So it’s a good chance for him to play in a big tournament. I just hope they can do well and go all the way and win it."
