Ryan Giggs: reflections on the career of a football legend
Ryan Giggs is still going strong at 37 and Sir Alex Ferguson believes the club’s most decorated and respected players still has another season in the tank.
The Manchester United legend is enjoying life in the twilight of his magnificent career, and was in reflective mood as he looks to add to his massive medal collection. GMF logged his thoughts...
- I relish the big games even more. You want to enjoy it and make the most of it at the time.
- When you finish it's the big games which you're going to miss, against Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, the big European games, the atmosphere.
- When players turn 30 there is that maturity about them and probably the gaffer gives you a lot more respect and asks your views."
- I was lucky in that I had people around me, I still lived at home and the manager kept an eye on me.
- They probably don't have that now because there are so many players getting good money at a young age, and you have to pay them or they'll go elsewhere.
- That never used to be the case. You don't resent it because things have changed. That's one of the manager's strengths - he moves with the times, realises that football changes.
