Giggs praises Cleverley confidence

Ryan Giggs has tipped his Manchester United team-mate, Tom Cleverley, to become a huge star at Old Trafford this season.

The 23-year-old delivered another assured performance on his competitive debut for the Three Lions in Friday night's emphatic 5-0 victory over Moldova, and appears to be a huge part of Roy Hodgson's plans over the forthcoming qualifying campaign.

Having missed the majority of last season through injury, Cleverley is expected to play a much more significant role for the Red Devils too, and Giggs is certain the youngster has the ability to succeed in Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

"He is a really good player," said the Welsh veteran. "He had a really good start last season and then got injured and it was a bit of a stuttering season.

"But, this year, I was with him at the Olympics and he was brilliant and he has started the season on fire.

"Hopefully he can go through the season injury-free and I am sure he will play lots of games for United and England."

Giggs meanwhile, has been limited to cameo appearances for the club he has served with such distinction over the years, after Ferguson gave the 38-year-old midfielder additional time off after the Olympics.

That said, he is now back within the first-team fold, and watched from the bench as United came back to win 3-2 against Southampton in a thrilling Premier League encounter last weekend.
