Just as he did in Moscow, Giggsy put away his penalty to help us go on to lift the trophy.
After the match, our veteran spoke to the press about the effect Sir Alex Ferguson has on the players, claiming that the manager’s hunger for more success is what drives the team forward.
“It’s a cup final so obviously we wanted to win it and kick on from there,” said Giggs. “That’s what we did with the world club championship so hopefully we can show the same form after winning this. There’s a long way to go in all trophies remaining, we’ve just got to keep the same desire and play as well as we have done. The manager’s desire filters down to players and I think you can see that with the players we’ve got.”
