Ryan Giggs says Manchester United’s priority is to retain their Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils are preparing for their first campaign without Sir Alex Ferguson after David Moyes was named the Scot’s successor earlier this summer.

With Chelsea and Manchester City also changing managers, Giggs is expecting the imminent season to be one of the most unpredictable in recent memory.

And the former Wales international, who has 13 top-flight titles, insists the Red Devils will look to defend their league crown at all costs.

“I think you always go out each season to win the league. That’s always the priority,” Giggs told United’s website.

“The rest is a lottery really. We saw that last season [in the Champions League against Real Madrid].

“You can play well, perform well and do everything that’s asked of you but then things just don’t quite happen.

“All we can do is our best. But this club is all about winning. We’re the champions and we want to defend our title.”

He added: “I don’t think you can say we have to win this or we have to win that. All you can do is perform to the best of your ability and if it’s not
good enough it’s not good enough.

“It’s under-performing that people won’t put up with and rightly so. Doing your best is the most important thing and hopefully we can finish the season with one or two trophies.”
