Ryan Giggs has revealed that his career would now be over if he had ever left Manchester United, reports

The Welsh veteran, who celebrates his 40th birthday today, is still playing a major role in Manchester United's success and put in a fine performance as the Red Devils destroyed Bayer Leverkusen in Germany on Wednesday. 

And, after starring at Manchester United for 22 years, Giggs has revealed that if it wasn't for the Red Devils, he would no longer be gracing the football pitch.

Speaking to the North Wales Daily Post, Giggs said: "If I’d moved from club to club I’d be finished by now.

Giggs has also insisted that the people around him have played a major role in his career at Manchester United. The Welsh star continued by saying: "I’m lucky that I have been at one club, where I am surrounded by good players. I also have a good manager.

"I look after myself and try to train every day in order to make myself available for selection. I enjoy it as much as I can and, of course, try to contribute to the team."

Giggs is in contention to play for Manchester United as they travel to Tottenham this weekend. The Red Devils will be looking to build on their fine European win with a victory at White Hart Lane on Sunday. 

Manchester United currently trail Premier League leaders Arsenal by seven points at the top of the division and will be hoping to make up some ground over this weekend.
