Giggs: Departures won`t hurt us

22 July 2009 07:38
Ryan Giggs is confident Manchester United will continue to prosper, even without the talents of Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez. The departed duo were major inspirations behind United's Champions League-winning campaign two seasons ago. And while Tevez ultimately left in bad-tempered fashion, annoyed at his lack of first-team opportunities, Ronaldo was also a key figure in a third straight Premier League title last term. However, in his 18 years as a United regular, Giggs has seen countless stars come and go. On each occasion, the Red Devils have responded in the perfect manner - and the Welsh veteran can see no reason why it should be any different this time round. "Since I came into the team the likes of Bryan Robson, Mark Hughes, Eric Cantona, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Roy Keane and David Beckham have left the club," he said. "But that is what the manager is so good at - reshaping and re-energising the team. "Carlos and Cristiano were great players but we move on. As players it's like ships in the night. You just get on with it."
