Ryan Giggs unconcerned by lack of signings

Ryan Giggs is confident Manchester United can defend their Premier League title with or without new signings.
 
The 39-year-old made his 21st Wembley appearance for United in Sunday's Community Shield as victory over Wigan gave new manager David Moyes his first trophy.
 
Moyes has so far failed to add a big-name player to his squad following a long and unsuccessful pursuit of Cesc Fabregas, while rivals Chelsea and Manchester City have both strengthened since losing out on the title last season.
 
But Giggs, now part of the Old Trafford coaching staff, believes the players who delivered last season can do so again.
 
"The quality is in the squad," Giggs said. "We showed that last year. Now we have to show it again.
 
"It has been a slow transfer window. Manchester City did their business early on but, other than that, there has not been a lot of movement so it could be a hectic last two weeks.
 
"We will just have to wait and see how it goes but we are quite happy with the players in our dressing room. We won the league with those players. If we sign someone - great. If not we will just get on with it."
 
United face a tough opening to the season and play Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City before September is out.
 
Speaking to Sky Sports News after the game at Wembley, he said: "This club's all about winning trophies and competing for trophies.
 
"You can't win every year, but we want to compete and give ourselves the best chance. That's what we've done over the years. We're the champions, we know how hard it is to defend it and we'll do our best."
