Giggs is still very much involved on the playing side and put in an hour-long shift in Saturday’s first pre-season match against a Singha All Star XI, in which several Reds youngsters caught the eye.
The Welshman added: "I am excited. Adnan [Januzaj] did well and looks a really good prospect. He has trained with us quite a bit in pre-season and shown his talent.
"Now it is just about having that experience, learning from the older players and doing what he does best. You don't want to get ahead of yourself – he is only young.
"Wilfried [Zaha] came on and was unlucky not to score, and Jesse [Lingard] got some shots off as well. It was good experience for these lads to come on the tour, play in front of big crowds and get that experience.
"All the players I mentioned, not just Wilfried, are tremendous prospects. They are all exciting and will gain experience from games like that."
Giggs was speaking to PA Sport.
"Even though I have been playing for 20-odd years, I am seeing the other side of it, how we prepare for games. It is something I had not experienced as a player. Some things I knew, others I didn't. It has been a real education."
