Giggs savours United victory

Ryan Giggs expressed his pleasure after Manchester United thrashed Bayer Leverkusen 5-0 to qualify for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
 
Giggs, who will turn 40 on Friday, turned in a fine performance to help United claim their biggest away win in the Champions League.
 
Antonio Valencia broke the deadlock and an Emir Spahic own goal quickly made it 2-0, before Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling and Nani struck after half-time.
 
"I think our speed (was the difference)," Giggs told Sky Sports 2 after a masterful display in central midfield.
 
"The first goal was a good example; quick play. It was a pleasure to play behind our front four."
 
While he was delighted to seal a place in the knockout stages, Giggs felt United could even have won by a wider margin.
 
"We could have scored more," he said.
 
"But we can't be too greedy. To score five anywhere in Europe is a great result.
 
"Going into a game knowing a win puts us through is a carrot and the five goals and a clean sheet is a bonus.
 
"It was a pleasure."
