Ryan Giggs admits he was shocked by Manchester United's capture of former Liverpool star Michael Owen.

“I don't think I ever thought we'd see Michael in a United shirt but he's shown over the two games here what he is all about,” Giggs said.

“He is a goalscorer. It's as simple as that. You always admire a player who bursts on the scene at 17 or 18 and carries on scoring throughout his career for the clubs he has played for and for his country. Goalscorers like Michael just seem to have an instinct they are born with.”
