Manchester United player-coach Ryan Giggs has no problem turning 40 this year.

Giggs is unfazed about reaching 40 in a couple of months' time as he is proud of his longevity at the top level of the game.

“Apparently 40 is the new 30, so I’m looking forward to it," he joked with United Review. "I know it’s quite daunting for some people but you just have to embrace it, not worry too much about it and just enjoy yourself.

"I’ve never really put too much stock in my age – to me, it’s more about how you feel and I feel pretty good at the moment. That said, I might try to keep my birthday a secret from all the lads when it comes round on 29 November. That might prove tough, though!"
