What Giggs told Man Utd pal Rooney to convince him to stay

Manchester United player-coach Ryan Giggs admits speaking with Wayne Rooney when he was unsettled over the summer. Rooney was flirting with Chelsea.

Giggs told the Telegraph: "I'm the sort of person where I give people their space and respect them but I let him know I wanted him to stay: 'This is the place for you. Bobby Charlton's goalscoring record is in your sights. That's an unbelievable record. Do you really not want to take that chance?"
