Neville: Giggs in a class of his own

Gary Neville does not believe the staggering achievements of Ryan Giggs will ever be beaten and predicted his long-time Manchester United team-mate could extend his career well into his forties.

Neville did not do too badly during his own playing days, collecting eight league titles and a Champions League winners' medal in a substantial trophy haul before quitting the game in the middle of last season, but he will always be overshadowed by Giggs, leader of that famed Class of 92 which spawned so many medal collectors.

Should United go on to lift the Premier League title this term, it would be Giggs's 13th, and Neville said: "Ryan is 38 years old, and he will contribute at the age of 42 if he wants to, the way his body is right now, the way his football is and the quality he still has."
