Ryan Giggs will start his 23rd season with Manchester United under a new manager for the first time in his playing career.

The midfielder will begin his coaching career this season after David Moyes  appointed him to his coaching staff. 

"I've only had one manager for 20 years, so it's strange, but you move on," said Giggs.  

"I've really enjoyed it. Just like any other pre-season, you've got to work hard, knuckle down and prepare yourself as best you can for the first (Premier League) game of the season against Swansea.  

"Crazy, aren't I? I'm enjoying it just as much as I did 20 years ago. It's as simple as that.  

"Every year is a bonus to me. Take last year, when we won the league. Winning that trophy makes it all worthwhile, and that feeling you have after the hard work you put in.  

"The thing about Manchester United is you have to do it all over again. This is the start of the journey this season and I hope to be lifting a trophy again at the end of it.  

"We have to put the hard work in now, in order to achieve that."

Moyes, speaking at a press conference in Sydney, said: "I have to put this in perspective and it is completely different.

"The amount of support we've had, the amount of interest we've had from you people (the media), constantly we are watched and scrutinised, and it's something I'll need to come to terms with.

"I'm following probably the finest football manager that's ever lived. I'm always saying if I can even win a quarter of what he won, I'll have done very well.

"But the first thing I've got to do is settle into the job, get to know everybody, and find my way around."
