Man Utd veteran Giggs: Ferguson wants me to play on

Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs says Sir Alex Ferguson is doing all he can to extend his career.

The veteran Old Trafford star will turn 40 next November and if he decides to stay on for another season when his contract runs out in June, he'll join an elite group of golden oldies to play in the Premier League after their Big Four-O birthday.

He said: "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."
