Giggs Allowed To Catch Charlton

Giggs Allowed To Catch Charlton

Giggs will be running down the wing (or the middle, I know) for another season as negotiations ended successfully.

Some have questioned whether he deserves another deal on the base of his performances so far but it has never really been an issue with the club. The veteran legend will get another year to catch up Bobby Charlton, all-time leader in terms of appearances for United.

'I am delighted to have signed for a further season,' Giggs told the official website.

'I am enjoying football more than ever and I hope to carry on playing football for Manchester United for as long as I can.

'I would like to thank Sir Alex Ferguson, the fans and everyone at the club for the great support I have received over the years.'


Sir Alex who claims he was immediately impressed with Giggs way back in 1987 hailed the professionalism and more importantly, loyalty of the Welshman.

'Ryan Giggs epitomises the word loyalty, he signed here as a 14-year old school boy and is still with the club 20 years on,' he said.

'Apart from his playing ability he has a fantastic demeanour and is a great role model to the younger players. I am sure he will be at the club for a long time to come.'

Chief executive David Gill expressed his delight over signing the deal and added that negotiations had gone fairly smoothly as both parties had wanted the contract to be sorted sooner rather than later.
