Giggs: Man Utd ready to string positive performances together

Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs says the team is ready to get onto a roll.

Fresh from a two-week break, the Reds legend cannot wait for the action to unfold and has declared his side are about to get "properly down to business" in the pursuit of domestic and European glory.

Giggs told Manutd.com: "It's been a stuttering start to the season with the international breaks so it's really pleasing to be involved in a big week like this one, with Everton, Rangers and then Liverpool in eight days. It's what you want as a player.

"So far we've had one game a week, but to me it doesn't really feel like the season's kicked off properly until you're playing in midweek as well and the games are coming thick and fast."

The Welshman believes squad rotation will come to the fore in the next few fixtures. Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to shuffle his deck of United talent, particularly where the plethora of attacking players is concerned.

"So far there may have been some players who have been left out of teams or rested," said Giggs. "But with so many big games in a short space of time you know you're going to get a chance and it's important you're ready to take that opportunity.

"The whole squad knows you have to be at the races and we're all focused on what needs to be done."
