West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has called on Andy Carroll to follow the example of Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs.

Allardyce hints Carroll can avoid his injury problems by taking his long-term fitness seriously.

"We want him playing with longevity in mind.

"He should know by now how important taking care of his body is going to be. It's critical to the length of his career. He will have to come in a bit earlier and sometimes stay a bit later. If he ignores that, he might get injured again.

"Nobody is a better example of that than Ryan Giggs."
