United mix perfect for Giggs

Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United have the right blend of youth and experience in their bid to land the Premiership title.

The Welsh winger's career was celebrated by the Football Writers' Association in London on Sunday, but the 33-year-old continues to look ahead and is determined to add to his eight league titles.

"It's definitely got the potential to be a very good team," said Giggs of Sir Alex Ferguson's current side.

"We've got a mixture of youth and experience, we're going well but we've got to carry on. We're playing the right way.

"The manager has been there as have some of the players, that's key to helping the other players along."

Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville were all championship winners in 2003 and the veterans have been joined this season by on-loan striker Henrik Larsson.

With Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo bringing youth to the squad, United are looking to prevent Chelsea sealing a hat-trick of titles.

Ronaldo, in particular, has impressed this term and is second to only Didier Drogba in the race to be the top-flight's leading goalscorer.

"He's the player of the season without a doubt, scoring goals and creating goals, it's the way he plays which is what fans want to see," added Giggs on Sky Sports News.

Giggs, however, does not plan on allowing Ronaldo to steal all of the limelight and has stated his determination to carry on playing as long as possible.

"You look at the likes of Teddy Sheringham, Gary Speed - still playing in the Premiership and playing well.

"As long as I keep my fitness, the challenge is there, the desire is there and I enjoy my football - if all those things are in place I want to carry on as long as I can," added Giggs. Posted by Picasa
