Giggs hopes to stay on at Man United

The former Wales international Ryan Giggs wants to extend his career at Manchester United until at least the end of the next football season.

Giggs says he feels fit enough to continue for at least another year after his current one-year deal expires next June.

The 37-year-old made his league debut for United against Everton in March 1991 and has played more matches for the club than anyone else - 884 - including 618 in the league after overtaking Bobby Charlton's old record of 606 league appearances last season.

He is the most decorated player in English football, having won 12 league titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups and the Champions League twice during his 21-year career at Old Trafford.

Giggs has made a fine start to this season, scoring twice in eight matches in all competitions and, although his days of sprinting up and down the wing have passed, he now operates as a central playmaker or forward with considerable influence.

He was speaking just before Prince Albert of Monaco gave him the Golden Foot 2011 Award.
