Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has admitted that last season’s failure to land a major trophy has fuelled his and his teammates desire even more to make amends this season.

United impressed yesterday by dispatching Chelsea comfortably 3-1 to win the Community Shield, and look in good shape to challenge again on all fronts after only managing to claim the Carling Cup last season.

Giggs has revealed that after last season’s failures, the great hunger at Old Trafford is even stronger now as they look to reclaim the Premier League and progress further in the Champions League.

"There is always that hunger, even if you are defending things," said Giggs.

"But there is probably that added bit of determination because you don't want to go through another summer like this one again where we did not win the league.

"When you do not win the league, it is always hard.

"Now the challenge is there for us again. We do have to improve but if the squad stays fit and we get a bit of luck, we always fancy ourselves."

Giggs is among a number of older fixtures in the United side who are still very much prominent, but with Antonio Valencia and Nani impressing last season and arguably the Premier League’s most exciting new talent Javier Hernandez all ready to push on this season, United seem more capable on paper this season compared to last, and the 36-year-old agrees.

"Javier has the extra quality that makes a difference," he said.

"Javier is a goal-poacher. His overall movement and ability to find space is really good.

"Hopefully he can get a lot of goals this year. He has started pre-season really well and I am sure he will be a great player for us."

"The Community Shield does not have a direct bearing on what is going to happen over the coming months but it does send out a marker," said Giggs.
