Manchester United legend unsure over 1000-game landmark

Published 4 Comments

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has cast doubt over his future by admitting he’s unsure if he’ll ever reach the landmark of 1000 games for the club.

The Welshman has made 954 appearances for the Red Devils, with 11 of those coming under new manager David Moyes.

A one-club man, Giggs is yet to pen a new contract for next season, and he admits that he hasn't given serious thought to chasing the incredible landmark - subsequently putting his own playing future in doubt.

“I honestly don’t know. It’s not something I can say that I’ve thought seriously about,” he said, according to Metro.

“If it comes great, if it doesn’t I’m not going to grumble, but we’ll see. If I’m playing well and enjoying it then I’ll carry on.”

Giggs, who made his debut for Manchester United in 1990, is one of the most decorated players in world football history, with 13 Premier League titles, four FA Cups, four League Cups and two Champions League.

He’ll need to play for at least another season if he’s to reach the incredible 1000-game landmark, but former teammate Phil Neville believes he has the attributes to make it to that incredible figure.

“He’s a fantastic human being and I can see him playing until he’s 41 because he looks after himself so much,” said the former England international.

“He’s got to keep going and producing the levels that he’s doing, but if anyone can do it then Ryan Giggs can, he’s smashed every record that’s been put in front of him.”

A 14th Premier League title should be the first priority for the Manchester United legend, and the champions will need to come from behind if they are to enjoy domestic success this season.
