Giggs: This Man Utd squad can dominate for years

Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United's current young squad is capable of dominating the Premiership for many years.

"I don't see why this team can't dominate for the next few years," Giggs told the Mirror. "Everything is in place for that to happen. It just depends whether the younger players have the hunger and desire to keep on winning trophies, but I'm sure that's the case.

"I think this group of players is up there with the 1999 lot, which was obviously a really good squad.

"But this is probably the best squad we've had in terms of the balance between the young lads and the experienced players.

"That mixture of experience from the older players and the enthusiasm of the younger ones has created the perfect blend for continued success.

"But you're judged on what you win. The 1999 team set the benchmark by winning the Treble. That's what this team is capable of doing. But you've got to go out there and do it.

"This team is the right age to achieve success for a long time. There are only a few of us over 30.

"Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown are in their late 20s and have several more good years ahead of them.

"Then you have the younger lads, which is the majority of the team, who are in their early to mid 20s, so they're going to be around for even longer."
