Man Utd boss Ferguson can see Giggs, Scholes playing on
Both veterans have kicked off the new season in fine form.
Ferguson said: "We have a few of those who have lived their lives the right way, looked after themselves and been good professionals.
"You can, if you look after yourselves, have a long career in the game.
"Every game we play is a cup final - you cannot overstate that.
"Paolo Maldini was like that, unbelievable. He was 40 when he finished. Costacurta was another one.
"It can be done. It depends on how much Giggs and Scholes enjoy it and whether they stay clear of injuries."
