Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has publicly praised manager Sir Alex Ferguson, crediting the Scot with excellent decisions with regards to rotation management.

The 39 year old has played only a bit-part role with the league leaders this season, but looked nowhere near his years at the weekend as he contributed to a convincing midfield in the club’s 4-0 win over Wigan Athletic. Giggs has struggled at times this season, but Ferguson has once again found a way to rotate his aging – and also his up-and-coming – stars.

“We’ve got a good squad and the manager has rotated things right for the games,” Giggs said following the club’s hectic festive fixture list, according to the Daily Star.

“We looked fresh against Wigan and that’s credit to the manager.

“You never know what you’re going to get when you’ve got four games in 10 days when it comes to injuries and fatigue.”

There have been few consistent players in Sir Alex Ferguson’s starting eleven this season, with Michael Carrick, Patrice Evra, and superstar Robin van Persie the only real certainties each week. Ryan Giggs has featured sparingly, along with fellow experienced midfielder Paul Scholes, as Ferguson prepares youngsters such as Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck for larger roles in the future.

Due in large part to Ferguson’s excellent rotation, the Red Devils sit atop the Premier League table with over half the season gone, and will be determined to not throw away their seven point lead over defending champions and bitter rivals Manchester City.
