Giggs on team selection: 'I didn't sleep last night'

Caretaker manager of Manchester United Ryan Giggs spoke to Sky Sports after his team convincingly beat Norwich City 4-0:

Giggs said: "I was really pleased with the performance and the response of the players. I didn't sleep last night with having to leave the likes of Mata out of the starting eleven and it was really, really tough. I am one of their team-mates so to leave them out was really tough".
