But for your country it's that bit more special, it's in your heart and your blood and you want to make the whole country proud.

It is understood that the Wales' record goalscorer would rather stay in Spain but the presence of the France legend could make it hard.

Giggs was asked whether Bale should stay at Real Madrid, he responded: "Yes. When you shut the door of your office and everyone else has gone home, you're on your own", Giggs said.

United may wish UEFA Champions League success upon quarter-finalists Real given the circumstances, boosting Zidane's chances of remaining and, according to reports, increasing the odds of a Bale departure as a result.

And, with Zidane under mounting pressure, it is yet to be seen if the Frenchman will survive the rest of the season at the Bernabeu. To win any trophy is always good.

"Gareth has the ability to score every type of goal and there are similarities with Cristiano. They both started out as wingers and they are now goalscorers".

World Tuberculosis Day raises awareness about deadliest infectious disease
We have been battling TB for more than 30 years, and are one of the biggest non-governmental treatment providers in the world. There were 4,268 persons living with HIV at the end of 2016, and there are 225-250 new HIV cases every year.

Giggs is off to a flying start with a 6-0 hammering of China - Wales's biggest margin of victory since August 1996 with Gareth Bale netting a hat-trick to ironically topple Rush at the top of the Dragons' goal charts.

Meanwhile, Manchester United will return to Premier League action after the worldwide break when they host Swansea City at Old Trafford.

Giggs also revealed he had taken advice from England rugby head coach Eddie Jones and Chelsea supremo Antonio Conte before taking charge of Bale and Co.

"I learned a lot about how lonely it was when I was United manager", he said.

He says he spoke to a lot of managers in the 18 months before he was appointed Wales boss, and also tried to pick up pointers from other leading figures in other sports.

"It's good to have people around and you want those people to be the ones you trust, but it can still be a lonely place". He was a Welshman who wanted it and I hope he does well. I'm expecting a hard game, as always.
