Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs says new teammate Michael Owen offers them something different.

"Michael is a predator, which is something we don't presently have," said Giggs.

"We have had players like that over the years. Ruud (van Nistelrooy) is an obvious one. Andy Cole was another. They come alive in the box.

"From what I have seen over the years, the thing about Michael is that if he misses a chance it doesn't bother him one little bit.

"Some players go into their shell. It doesn't bother him at all.

"He knows he is going to get another chance. Ruud had the same mentality. All top goalscorers have it.

"They know they are going to get chances, so if they miss one, they just think, 'So what?'."
