Moyes will keep United at top: Giggs

June 29, 2013 16:30 IST

Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs believes that new boss David Moyes will keep the club at the top of their game, as the former Everton manager prepares to take up the daunting task of following in the footsteps of the legendary Alex Ferguson.

According to the Sun, Giggs reckoned that Moyes is not likely to face many problems because everything was set up for the new era to continue in the same mould.

Praising the quality of the side, the midfielder said that there are great players at Old Trafford and they have just won the league, adding that everything was in place to carry on.

David MoyesHe, however, admitted that it was a challenge and as a player one would always want to have such challenges.

Currently at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey as part of his coaching course, the veteran said that although he has his own unique style, it would be foolish on his part not to pick up skills that he learnt from Ferguson.

Meanwhile, Giggs also said that it had been 20 years since he started playing and he would like to be an apprentice again.

The Welshman, who will be 40 in November, is studying for his UEFA Pro License and is aiming to add to his 25 major honours after extending his contract at Old Trafford by another season.
