Manchester United assistant Ryan Giggs has expressed confidence that the arrivals of two South Americans: Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao will boost confidence at the club.

Two world class players whom most clubs would want to have,the Argentine and the Colombian were snatched up by United,alongside four other players,in a bid to rebuild their team.

The 20-time English champions broke the British transfer record to bring in Di Maria from Real Madrid for €75 million last Tuesday, before signing Falcao on a season-long loan from Monaco on deadline day.

And Giggs feels that both players will be a great addition to their team as they hope to improve on last season's seventh place finish.

"Confidence is a problem," Giggs told The Daily Telegraph. "It's not easy at times, especially at Old Trafford where we've not performed really for over a year now.

"Funnily enough away from home there's not been the same problem. We need to get that sorted as quickly as possible.

"When you see players of that ilk coming into the club it's exciting; whether you're a player or a coach it gives you a buzz. You want to play with the best players and you certainly want to coach the best.

"We've got very good players at the club now. It's up to us – and them – to get that reflected in the results."

But Giggs is refusing to panic and is confident that a reversal in fortunes is around the corner.

"It may take a bit more time to get it right, but the players are on board," Giggs added. "They are vocal on the training pitch and in meetings - that's what we want. We want this system to get results.

"Coming seventh last year wasn't good enough. We haven't started well this season, but we have to look to win something.

"We've got to be looking to contest the Premier League and look to get back in the Champions League. And I honestly believe, with the players we've now got, we're not far off."Goal
