Giggs: Let's get it done
Ryan Giggs is urging United to wrap up an English record 19th league title as soon as possible after deservedly beating nearest challengers Chelsea at Old Trafford.
The Welshman was instrumental once again in beating the Blues - setting up the crucial second goal on Sunday afternoon for Nemanja Vidic - and he's now within touching distance of a 12th championship medal for himself.
"It's a massive step forward. Mathematically it’s not done yet but we’re nearly there," said Ryan after the 2-1 win over Chelsea.
"We’ve just got to finish the job off, hopefully next week. We’ve got to get one point from the next two games. It’s a great chance for us and we’ll try and get it done as soon as possible. Blackburn’s a tough place to go but I’m sure we’ll have loads of fans going to that one. It’ll be a great atmosphere, it always is. And as always, we won’t go for the draw, we’ll try and win."
Giggs looked as evergreen as ever against Chelsea, more than 20 years after making his debut. At that time, in 1991, United had won seven titles to Liverpool's 18 but now the Reds are set to go one ahead.
“Fifteen, twenty years ago, you’d never have thought it. It’s a great achievement by the club and by the manager to haul back our biggest rivals over the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. We’re nearly there and if we do it, it will be special.”
