Ryan Giggs is determined to see Manchester United regain their Premier League title from Chelsea after admitting that he is often motivated by failure rather than fame.

The next campaign will be Giggs' 20th at Old Trafford but his mindset was shaped when he broke into the team. Giggs said: "In my first full season we lost out in the league to Leeds. That just sticks in your mind. It makes you more determined and after that I had a lot of success but along the way lots of disappointments.

"It is the disappointments that keep the desire going and the hunger going. Every season you look for a challenge and I've always found that with United. I've obviously looked forward to every season and been happy to play for United and United have wanted to keep me. I've been lucky in that respect that I've played with so many great players, so many great teams. I've never wanted to leave at any point. So it looks like I'm just going to play for one team for all the time of my career."

Giggs and fellow veteran Paul Scholes are both using the club's tour of North America to build up their fitness levels ahead of the coming season.

United head home following the final game of their tour against new signing Javier Hernandez's former club Guadalajara in Mexico tomorrow.
