Man Utd's Giggs ponders going on for another season

Ryan Giggs has indicated that he may be back for another campaign with Manchester United next season.

The 39-year old midfielder has suggested that the fact manager Sir Alex Ferguson allows him to manage his fitness so well could lead to yet another season at Old Trafford.

"I will see how I feel and see how I am contributing, and then I will sit down to talk with the manager," he told the Sunday People.

"The manager is brilliant with me and at this stage of my career he really allows me to manage myself in terms of my fitness and training.

"In a way I suppose I get an easier ride than some of the younger lads and that's because the manager recognises I have different needs at this point.

"But don't get me wrong, my fitness has to be spot on otherwise I just couldn't compete with the rest of the guys either in training or during matches.

"But as for normal training, I do what the other lads do. The only difference is my recovery process is slightly longer at my age and the manager appreciates that.

"The rest of it is just like it's always been in that you have got to take care of yourself at this club, work hard and look after yourself."
