Ryan Giggs denies reports of fall-out with Moyes

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has rejected claims that he has suffered a fall-out with manager David Moyes.

Reports from the weekend had suggested that a rift between the two men had left Giggs contemplating his future with the Red Devils, but he appeared keen to set the record straight while sitting alongside the Scot at Monday's Champions League press conference.

"There’s obviously no problem with the manager. I don’t know where that’s come from. The relationship (with Moyes) is good. I know I’m not going to play every game. You can’t sulk." he was quoted by The Metro prior to tomorrow night's quarter-final clash against Bayern Munich at Old Trafford.

40-year-old Giggs - the oldest outfield player in the Premier League who made his league debut for Manchester United 23 years ago this month - has been used somewhat sparingly by Moyes during his own first campaign at the club, with the Welshman having featured on just 11 occasions in the top-flight.

However, despite his that, Giggs has still evidently been relied upon to produce for Moyes on the big occasions, with his performance in central midfield providing the catalyst for Manchester United's rousing comeback from a two-goal deficit to defeat the spirited challenge of Greek champions Olympiacos last month.

And while even the most-committed and admiring of Giggs' supporters would surely expect him to finally hang up his boots this summer, the player himself also went on to indicate that he is unsure of his plans and will decide his next course of action at the end of the current season.

"At the end of the season I’ll stock and see what I want to do."

Tuesday's tie against Pep Guardiola's Bayern - who won their first Bundesliga title under the reputable Spaniard last week with several games to spare - is sure to provide a formidable test of Manchester United's character.

While few would expect them to book their place in the semi-finals at the expense of the dominant Bavarians, Moyes will be looking for encouraging signs that his side are still capable of competing with Europe's elite.
