Giggs hungry for more

Ryan Giggs says winning the league title last season made it an enjoyable summer, but the veteran insists he was itching to get back to work.

Giggs has returned to training with an extra string to his bow following the announcement that this season he will be a player/coach.

Like all the players, the 39-year-old is thoroughly enjoying the new United regime under new boss David Moyes and cannot wait for the season to start.

"Things have been going great to so far and everyone is working hard," Giggs told "Personally, I feel good. I shut down for about three weeks after the season finished but then started going in the gym a couple of times on holiday after that and also did a bit of swimming and a few runs. I was also in Turkey doing my coaching badges with Gary [Neville] so we were training partners which was good.

"I enjoyed the summer and if you compare it to last year they're like chalk and cheese. It's obviously great to win the league and you can enjoy your summer knowing you're champions, but as it goes on you're itching to get back - you want that challenge again and you can't wait for the season to start.

"Of course, you need that rest after a tough season but two or three weeks into your holiday you're already thinking about coming back and achieving more."
