As he prepares for his 1000th game against Norwich on Saturday, the 39 year old agreed a short term deal that will see him remain at Old Trafford until June 2014. BCC have quoted Sir Alex Ferguson, who is thrilled to have secured the player for another year:
“Ryan is an example to us all, the way in which he has, and continues to, look after himself. What can I say about Ryan that hasn’t already been said? He is a marvellous player and an exceptional human being.
“He has fantastic energy for the game and it is wonderful to see. Ryan seems to reach a new milestone every week, and to think that he now has 23 unbroken years of league goals behind him is truly amazing in the modern-day game.
“His form this year shows his ability and his enjoyment of the game are as strong as ever and I am absolutely delighted that he has signed a new contract.”
Having already won 12 Premier League titles, and with a 13th now looking a formality, Giggs will go down as one of the legends of the famous Old Trafford club.
