Man Utd ace Giggs: Ferguson now asks me for advice!

Ryan Giggs says Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson now turns to him for advice!

Fergie has given Giggs a one-year extension to his contract as he continues to defy advancing years.

And he revealed that Ferguson regularly sounds him out on footballing matters - and even seeks his advice. But it was not always like that with Giggs saying: "My relationship has changed with him.

"When I first met him I was 13 and for the next 10 years you try and keep out of the way.

"He asks your advice more now than when you were a younger player. You have that experience.

"You're in the changing room day in day out, so it's a natural progression from manager to coach to experienced player in the dressing room."
