Man Utd legend Giggs unsure playing on next season

Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs cannot guarantee playing on next season.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes Giggs could play another two years - at the least.

But he told the Telegraph this could be his last campaign: "It could be, yes. I'm a similar mindset that I've been for the past couple of years: evaluate after Christmas, see how I feel, see what the manager thinks.

"If I'm not enjoying it, if I'm not contributing like I have done in the last couple of years then I'll finish. I'm 39 in November. I'm not worried by it [retirement]. It's been coming for a couple of years. But I'm still enjoying it. I still feel I'm contributing to the team.

"I speak to so many players who I played with, Brucey, Robbo, Denis Irwin, and they always say to me, 'Play as long as you can'. I imagine there's no substitute for the feeling you get playing, the adrenalin.''
