Giggs: Massive changes in Man Utd training approach over years

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs admits training at the club has changed over the years.

Giggs has spent over 20 years at United and has seen the transformation up close.

"It's changed a lot. Much of that is to do with the surroundings that we've got now - Carrington is completely different from The Cliff [the old training ground]. We've got the swimming pool, the gym, the big sports hall, an indoor astro-turf pitch… we've got everything you could want really," Giggs told MUTV.

"The Cliff was pretty basic; there was just a changing room, not the best gym in the world and really old weights. You just went out on the pitch and trained, came in, had a shower and went home, whereas here you've got so much to keep you occupied and keep you here longer."
