Aaron Ramsey, Steven Caulker, Ryan Bertand and James Tomkins are all looking forward to working with the Manchester United legend

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes that Manchester United star Ryan Giggs will be able to lead by example and all of the Team GB side will benefit from his experience.

Stuart Pearce made the Red Devils’ winger his captain, citing the respect the Welshman has within the game and in his squad and the young Gunner agrees.

“Everyone knows what he has done in the game,” Ramsey said.

“He has been there and done it. He has won many trophies and he is a great player as well.

“Hopefully he can lead by example and give his experience to the rest of the team.”

Tottenham defender Steven Caulker believes that Giggs is the obvious choice to be captain as well.

“He is obviously a fantastic player and it is nice to have met him.

“With all his experience and being the oldest member of the camp, he is the obvious choice.”

Chelsea full back Ryan Bertrand is just starting out in his career, making his first start in the Blues’ Champions League final victory against Bayern Munich, but is hoping to learn from the 38-year-old.

“I think his record speaks for itself,” the left back explained.

“He has been a fantastic player and servant to football.

“To come and be in the same team as him, hopefully I can learn a thing or two.”

West Ham defender James Tomkins admitted that he aspired to be held in the same regard as the Manchester United legend.

“I have followed him right throughout my career and looked up to him,” the Hammers star revealed.

“He is someone you aspire to become.

“He is a good man, a good player and is rightfully captain of the team.”
