Arsenal boss Wenger happy Man Utd's Giggs won PFA award

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he has no problem with Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs being named PFA Player of the Year.

"I like Ryan Giggs a lot," revealed Wenger.

"He started his career in 1991 and now we are in 2009.

"When a player has spent 18 years at that level you have to have complete respect because you know what it demands. It takes sacrifices and focus. To spend so long at the top level is massive.

"He was named player of the year on Sunday and there has been this big debate about this not being the best year of his career.

"But the miracle is not that he got it this year but that he did not get it before now."
