Ryan Giggs told students at the University of Bolton that it was "hard work" that got him through his 20 years playing for Manchester United. The comments came as the Welsh international received an honorary doctorate from the University. He told fellow graduands:
"...if I was going to give you one bit of advice, it would be - whatever field, whatever occupation you go into - that that is the main thing; work hard. And of course, try to enjoy it."
Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup said his side's win against Manchester United in the third round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford was "impressive", but admitted they "had a bit of luck" in securing a 90th minute winner against the Premier League champions.
"It's one of the great stadiums, not only here but in world football, so to win here is impressive, especially after being without the win for some games," he told BT Sport.
"We had a bit of luck in the sense that we scored a very late winner. When you play teams like Man United, Man City, Chelsea... you have to perform very well. You know they will create four or five good chances. I didn't see those four or five chances from Man Utd.
"I always sat out there with a feeling that we had a possibility.
'I don't fancy replays with the fixtures we have, so it was great to see that finishing.
"When they got the man (Fabio Da Silva) sent off, we played with two strikers to see if we could get the winner in the last 8-10 minutes and we did."
