Alex Ferguson London, Apr. 8 (ANI): Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs has admitted that he is “bamboozled” by Wayne Rooney’s suspension for swearing.

The Daily mail quoted Giggs, 37, as saying: “I’m not surprised by the furore surrounding it because of the profile Wayne has got, but a two-game ban? I’m surprised by that. It had just never been done before [a player being charged for swearing]. There was no precedent and that’s why we were bamboozled by it.”

“Obviously it is a blow. You want your big players flying at this point of the season because it is big game after big game. You want your special players scoring and Wayne is in good goal scoring form. He is a special player,” Giggs added.

Following the five-game touchline ban for manager Sir Alex Ferguson, Rooney’s suspension will create the kind of siege mentality at Old Trafford on which United thrive, according to their longest-serving player.

Ferguson has proved a master at circling the wagons over the years in times of adversity and his teams have usually fired the last shots.

“Maybe times of adversity do make us stronger,” said Giggs. (ANI)
