Giggs: Fergie still has five more years as United manager

Published Add your comment

Ryan Giggs believes Sir Alex Ferguson will still be Manchester United manager "in five years' time".

Giggs, 36, is expected to sign a new deal keeping him at Old Trafford until 2011 in the near future but expects to retire before his 67-year-old manager who he claims "still has that desire".

The 2009 BBC Sports Personality of the Year told the Times: "I think it will be me (retiring first). The manager is as good as ever and will go on for a long time."

He added: "I can still see him as manager of United in five years' time, easily, because as long as he is healthy he will have the desire to carry on.

"He has a great team around him, he has his passions away from the game and can get away with his horse racing. When he comes back to football he is refreshed, and I know he still has that desire."
