Giggs Accepts That Time Goes On

Ryan Giggs is set to sign a new contract but accepts that he will not be around forever.

The Welshman missed Saturday's 1-0 victory over Sunderland due to a hamstring strain but reports say he will be fit and available when United travel to Everton on September 15.

It is good news and I was happy to read that United will offer him an extension to the end of next season. The veteran winger will be over 35 by that time and may retire - possibly with a club record number of appearances.

'Over the last few years the manager has bought young players as he looks to the future,' he told The Sun.

'Eventually these young players will be United's future. The club never stands still and never will.'

Yeah, maybe, but for the present, we need Ryan Giggs very much. Mourinho said he would be happy if all our new signings played as that would mean there's no place for Giggs. I can't blame him for saying that...

He has been a great player for you over the years but he doesn't have long left and he should go out playing well rather than dissapear into the reserves like other great players have in the past.

He does play well therefore I don't think we need to urge him to retire.
