Man Utd legend Robson: Giggs can play into his 40s

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson doesn't believe next season will be the last for Ryan Giggs.

Robson now marvels at the staying power of the player who broke Sir Bobby Charlton's Manchester United appearance record.

Robson told the Sunday Mirror: "Ryan will be 38 in November and for me there's no doubt he can go on for a few more years yet.

"He's got the desire - that's why he's won as many things as he has in his career.

"When I saw him as a 17-year-old when he first came in he had unbelievable pace, stamina, and that hasn't changed much.

"He won't put weight on and he's a fitness fanatic. He also has an incredible mentality to keep going and keep winning.

"He has more of a temper than you'd think. He's mild-mannered, but when he really thinks something, he can snap and have a right go at people.

"You need that edge. You have to care and have a bit of edge to be a top player."
