Ryan Giggs Signs New Deal

Manchester United winger, Ryan Giggs has signed a one-year extension which will see him remain with the Red Devils until 2014.

Giggs, who signed his first professional contract with Manchester United in 1990, has already amassed a club-record of 931 appearances, and is well on his way to hitting the 1000th mark.

The 39-old Welshman has won numerous club and individual honours including 12 Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two Champions Leagues, and the 2011 Golden Foot Award

Giggs told the club’s official website: ÔÇ£I am feeling good, enjoying my football more than ever and, most importantly, I feel I am making a contribution to the team.

“This is an exciting team to be part of, with great team spirit, and we are again pushing for trophies as we head towards the business end of the season.

“I am delighted to have signed a new contract. I would like to thank Sir Alex and the coaching staff and I would also like to thank David Gill who has been a tremendous support over my many years here.”

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was also delighted with the extension, insisting his player is an example to everyone in football and suggesting the attacker’s ability and hunger are “as strong as ever”.

ÔÇ£What can I say about Ryan that hasnÔÇÖt already been said?┬áHe is a marvellous player and an exceptional human being,” the Scot added.┬á”Ryan is an example to us all, the way in which he has, and continues to, look after himself.

“He has fantastic energy for the game and it is wonderful to see. Ryan seems to reach a new milestone every week and to think that he now has 23 unbroken years of league goals behind him is truly amazing in the modern-day game.

“His form this year shows his ability and his enjoyment of the game are as strong as ever and I am absolutely delighted that he has signed a new contract.ÔÇØ
