'Class of '92' to make return against Salford

Ryan Giggs will definitely play football next season, but it could end up being no more than once.

The veteran midfielder has yet to decide as to whether or not he has a future at Manchester United, but has been confirmed as being a part of the 'Class of '92' group to play in a friendly against Salford City this summer.

That the game will take place after Manchester United's pre-season tour of the United States suggests that either Giggs, Nicky Butt or Phil Neville could be somehow involved in the tour, but gives no clearer indication as to whether Giggs will further his playing career.

The interim manager, 40, has taken the reigns of the first-team since David Moyes' sacking and has overseen a 3-1 win against Hull City, a 4-0 victory against Norwich and a surprise 1-0 home reverse against Sunderland.

However, with Dutchman Louis van Gaal expected to take charge in the next couple of weeks, doubts have been cast over Giggs' future.

The Welshman will appear in the fundraising game along with fellow 'Class of '92' graduates Butt, Paul Scholes and Gary and Phil Neville.

"It will be good to play with each other again," the ex-Manchester United players said in a statement that was quoted by The Manchester Evening News.

"We are going to ask some familiar faces to play with us."

Despite being the oldest member of the group of players from Manchester United's 1992 youth team that went on to shine at the highest levels of the game, Giggs is the only one still playing.

The 'Class of 92' group purchased Salford City earlier this year, with reports even suggesting that David Beckham could be asked to make an appearance.

The game will be played at the AJ Bell Stadium - home of Sale Sharks rugby union team and rugby league side Salford Red Devils.

And the money raised will go directly to non-League Salford City, who aim to give opportunities to local youngsters, and eventually make it into the Football League.

"This will be an exciting start for the new season, for the players, the club and most of all the fans," said Salford City chairman Karen Baird.
