Phil Neville: Giggs still trains as if he was a teenager

Phil Neville says Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs is phenomenal and still trains as if he was 16 years old.
 
The former Red Devils defender caught up with Kick Off to chat about the new film, 'Class of 92', and believes the Welshman, who turns 40 on Friday and was part of that special group, remains an example to all youngsters.
 
Neville, now a first team coach at Old Trafford, said: "We’ve still got one lad that’s playing at the age of 40 nearly and it’s just a phenomenal story Ryan has in itself.
 
"If you watch him train, you would not believe it, he does not look a 40 year old. He still looks like the young player that you saw training when he was 16 years old.
 
"His enthusiasm and his desire to still be a footballer is an absolute shining example to any young player."
 
The ex-England man added that United have now overcome their tricky start under David Moyes and believes they are capable of glory again.
 
"It was a tough start but we’re actually ten games unbeaten now. It’s not all doom and gloom. The players are in good form, they know what they have to do," he said.
 
"There was always going to be a settling in process after one man being in charge for so long. I think he [Moyes] is doing really well. We’ve got a fantastic squad and the foundations are really strong here.
 
"It was always going to take a little bit of time but I think he’s on the right road and I think he’s the best man for the job and I’m loving working under him."
