Manchester United boss expecting two more years from Giggs

Sir Alex Ferguson does not buy into suggestions that Ryan Giggs is considering retirement, and expects the Manchester United legend to continue his playing days for another two years.

Giggs turned 39 in late November and speculation comes with the territory at this advanced stage of his career, and perhaps also given that the veteran has made only 12 appearances for Manchester United this season.

The former Wales international is out of contract at the end of the current campaign, like his team-mate Paul Scholes, but Ferguson certainly does not see the former calling time on his career just yet.

Ferguson can, in fact, envisage Giggs extending his stay with Manchester United by another two years to take his time at Old Trafford into a remarkable 25th season.

"It’s the kind of speculation you expect because we only put older players on one-year contracts," Ferguson said, as reported by The Telegraph. "I think that Ryan Giggs will play for another year, or even maybe two years."

Should Giggs carry on for as long as Ferguson expects, then the midfielder would be in with a chance of breaking the 1000 game barrier for Manchester United.

Giggs has already played more times for Manchester United than any other player with 922 appearances, while he is on course to land an unprecedented 13th Premier League title this term.
