Man Utd icon Giggs has no regrets over Wales retirement
Giggs admits he will always have slight regrets when watching Wales, as was the case on Friday night when Chris Coleman's side lost to Belgium in their opening qualifier for the 2014 World Cup, and there are always calls for his return.
However, the man who this summer was Team GB's Olympic football captain is in no doubt about the long-term benefits, as he told Sky Sports News: "I decided to retire just to prolong my career, which I think was the right choice.
"But, of course, you think back to when you were playing for Wales and the great memories and you want to do the best for your country. Unfortunately I have retired now."
