Giggs signs new Man Utd deal

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has signed a one year contract extension with the Premier League champions, The Telegraph reports.

The 38 year old made his debut at Old Trafford in March 1991 and has represented United for 21 seasons. During his time at Old Trafford, Giggs has made a club record 898 appearances, scored 162 goals, won 12 Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two Champions League trophies. The Welshman is still going strong this season and has looked in good form so far, so United representatives have rewarded Giggs with the new deal.

Giggs said: ‘When I signed my first contract, I never thought I’d be able to play at United for 22 years, but I feel good and I know that I can still contribute to keeping the team pushing for honours. Winning the club’s 19th title was a great feeling, but this club is all about what we do next and I’m really pleased I can be part of that’.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson heaped praise on the Welsh midfielder , stating: ‘Ryan is a marvellous player. In many ways, he epitomises all my teams here at United; he has constantly re-invented himself, adapted to the changing nature of the game and retained that desire and hunger for success. In every training session and match, he is the example for others to follow’.
