After retiring from international football earlier this year, Manchester United's
winger feels fresh and rested ahead of Saturday's trip to Villa Park.

With the majority of his team mates away on international duty last week, and
team-mate, Nemanja Vidic, this week voicing his concerns over players fitness,
after the international break, Giggs feels ready for a return to Premiership football.

The Welsh winger's decision to leave behind his national side, in favour of his
club, was a difficult choice, but one he feels vindicated in making.

“It was a big decision," Giggs told United's official club website.

"I said at the time I hoped it would prolong my United career and even though
I've only missed a couple of internationals, I feel I've benefited already.

"I've done really good training this week and during the last international break
as well so hopefully it will prolong my career. I'm feeling the benefits, definitely."

The former Welsh captain has this week signed a contract extension, tying him to
Old Trafford for a further two seasons.

Giggs earned 64 caps for his country, scoring 13 goals, in an international career
that spanned over 15 years.
