Man Utd’s Giggs set for stint on sidelines after aggravating hamstring

Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs is set for a small stint on the sidelines so he can get his body right.

The 36-year old midfielder was returning from a two-week absence against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday but forced to the bench in the 40th minute of the 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

Although it is not a serious injury, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said the experienced Giggs would be given every chance to get himself back to full fitness.

The loss of Ryan as a wide player was a big one for us,” Ferguson told MUTV.

“He has done his hamstring again. He got it against Bolton (on September 26) but he trained all week and had been doing very well.

“But it has gone again and maybe we need to give him a longer recovery.”
