Veteran Manchester United midfield player Ryan Giggs says that the Premier League champions’ no 1 priority for the new season is to retain their top-flight title, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The Welshman will be starting his 24th campaign at Old Trafford, however, for the very first time in his career in the north west the Red Devils will not have Sir Alex Ferguson in the dugout after the Scot decided to retire at the end of last season.

And that has led to some pundits predicting a struggle ahead for United under their new man at the helm, David Moyes, especially following the restrengthening done this summer by rivals Manchester City and Chelsea.

However, when asked whether the club’s main aim would be to try and win a fourth Uefa Champions League title next year ahead of a 14th Premier League crown, the 39-year-old told mufc.com: “I think you always go out each season to win the league. That’s always the priority. The rest is a lottery really.

“We saw that last season [in the Champions League against Real Madrid]. You can play well, perform well and do everything that’s asked of you but then things just don’t quite happen. All we can do is our best. But this club is all about winning. We’re the champions and we want to defend our title.”

Giggs has now been a United player for the last 23 years, during which time the legendary wide man has featured in an incredible 942 games in total for the club, scoring 168 goals in the process, including 114 strikes in his 660 league outings, winning 13 titles along the way.
