The Wales national team manager told ESPNFC that as a United fan he had always wanted to be entertained.

"First of all, I was a Manchester United fan.

"I used to climb over the fence when I was a seven, eight-year-old, get the match bus to Old Trafford.

"Right from when I can remember, I used to go to Old Trafford and then, fast-forward to 17, 18, I played for the first team. I understand how the club works, what the fans want, because I was a fan."

Giggs namechecked Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba as the players he wanted to see entertain the crowd:

"I was also a player who wanted to excite the crowd, to get the fans on their feet. I want to see exciting players. I want to see Rashford, I want to see Martial, I want to see Pogba try things. That's what I tried to do when I was playing."

Giggs also paid tribute to the players he was with at the time, pointing out the team spirit at the club helped keep the side together and performing well:

"It was a really tight-knit group. "We had players like Roy Keane, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who were a similar age, and we had a really good team spirit.

"It always helps when you have the nucleus of players who know what the club's about or have been through the youth system. If you can get that then it's something special and it doesn't happen very often.

"They were special times because you're not only playing with teammates, you're playing with friends."

Despite that, Giggs thinks that there are a handful of players in the United squad who know the traditions of Old Trafford, and is optimistic:

"Football's changing, but you still have the likes of Rashford, Lingard, Pogba -- who was there when he was younger. You've got Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Michael Carrick's just left, but a group of players who know what the club's about," he said.

"I think it's always important to have that. It doesn't guarantee you success -- and if you don't have that it doesn't mean you're not going to win -- but it always helps if you do have that sort of team spirit."
