Giggs considers international comeback
Friday 26 March 2010
Ryan Giggs has told Wales boss John Toshack he would consider coming out of international retirement to cover for the injured Aaron Ramsey.
Giggs, 36, has not played for his country since the summer of 2007, but with the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign looming and Wales without Ramsey following his broken leg, that could soon change.
Asked about a possible international return, Giggs told the Western Mail: "It is something that I would have to talk about with John and Sir Alex Ferguson.
"But, at this stage, I wouldn't dismiss the idea.
"If I had that call from John I would have to think hard about it.
"I would properly consider the idea.
"I wouldn't rule it out."
Wales open their qualifying campaign away to Montenegro on September 3 before facing Bulgaria, Switzerland and England.
"Starting off well in a fresh campaign is vital," Giggs added.
"Those first two or three games are so important to get the whole country fully behind the team."
