After 4-0 win over Porto in Champions League Quarter final:
GIVEN SPARK BY
Alex Ferguson believes Ryan Giggs will be a world-beater within the next two years.
The 23-year-old Welshman was the unchallenged star of Wednesday's 4-0 destruction of Porto in the Champions League, scoring his fifth goal of the season.
The Portuguese simply could not subdue a player who assumed responsibility for organising midfield in the absence of Roy Keane.
No longer does Giggs simply run players into the ground with his weaving skills, now he ties them up with devastating passes, beginning to match David Beckham's creativity.
The rise of the England 21-year-old seems to have sparked Giggs and the Manchester United manager insists we have not even begun to see his best.
``Playing in midfield in a lot of ways does suit Ryan,'' said Ferguson. ``He showed a maturity and passing awareness that emphasises why I said he would be a truly wonderful player in two years' time.
``That passing part of his game that I said he would have to develop is now progressing well.
``But he's also got those things that you can't put into people like electricity and balance, and Porto just couldn't handle that.''
Giggs, who has recovered from all the injury which plagued him last year, said: ``I was obviously delighted with my own contribution but the most important thing was the result.
``We expected a very hard game but we are absolutely delighted with the result. Every single player played well and contributed something to the performance.
``Obviously the manager was delighted, but he told us afterwards that it would be difficult over there.
``It will be very difficult in Portugal, but we have got to go over there and make sure we produce the same kind of performance as tonight.''
