Giggs: United can rescue season

United crashed out of Europe on Wednesday to Bayern Munich on the

away-goals rule, leaving no English side left in the continent’s

elite club competition. Sir Alex Ferguson’s men may have triumphed

in the Carling Cup earlier in the campaign, but going out in the

third round of the FA Cup to bitter rivals Leeds followed by their

Champions League exit leaves them with only the Premier League to

play for. But experienced midfielder Giggs, 36, hopes domestic

glory will heal the wounds of the defeat to Bayern. “Of course we

can rescue the season, even though it was a disappointing night,”

he said in the Independent. “There are so many positives and we

have five games to go and we have to win them all. It won’t be easy

but we are capable of doing it. “Hopefully Chelsea and Arsenal will

slip up but that is what we will be aiming to do. “Learning from

these disappointments for young players is what being a Manchester

United player is all about. “When I was 18 or 19, I had loads of

disappointments. I had a lot of success as well but it can help you

in the long run and you remember these nights and don’t want to

feel like this again, so you try and do something about it. “You

have to take knocks in your career but it’s how you come back that

makes you into a United player.”
