Sir Alex Ferguson has challenged Michael Carrick to become the main man at Manchester United - and confirmed Ryan Giggs will be asked to extend his stay at Old Trafford into an incredible 23rd season.

Giggs extended his record of scoring in every Premier League campaign with his goal in Wednesday's 5-0 win at Fulham.

"I think Ryan can play another year," Ferguson said. "There is no evidence at this moment in time that his energy, stamina or speed are decreasing. In fact, it's exactly the same as it was the last two or three years. It's amazing."
