GIGGS AIMS HIGH
Manchester United’s winger Ryan Giggs has dismissed suggestions that the Premier league outfit are going to the Champions League quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich as the underdogs. United have been struggling for form in David Moyes’ first season at the club. They are set to finish outside the top four for the first time in in their Premier league history, but they have done well to at least reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Winning this competition remains as the only way that the club can hope to reach the prestigious next season.
However, they have been given a very difficult tie in the form of Bayern Munich, who come into the competition as the reigning champions. They have also recently managed to see the Bundesliga title with a record seven matches remaining the competition. After taking over in the summer, former Barcelona manager Guardiola has made the club even better with a possession style of football. Due to several factors like United’s struggles and Bayern’s domination, this is seen as a very easy match for the German club.
Giggs, who has been part of several great nights at Old Trafford, says that it is not the case because United certainly go into the match with a lot of confidence.
“You need to play well, to get that little bit of luck. We’re confident. We are Manchester United, and at Old Trafford we have had so many great nights. The relationship is good. As a player you want to play all the time… but you are not sulking, you just have to be ready to play your best for the team. There is no problem with the manager, I don’t know where that came from,” said Giggs. Giggs played a crucial role in helping the team reach the quarter finals.
