Manchester United will explore Ryan Giggs contract in offseason



Manchester United manager David Moyes was insistent that any new contract talks surrounding Ryan Giggs will have to wait until the end of the season. Ryan Giggs, who celebrated his 40th birthday on Friday, will have a chance to renegotiate his deal in the summer after the Premier League season is over, according to Moyes.

Ryan Giggs, who also is one of the primary subjects in the documentary Class of ’92, which is released tomorrow, is kind of a coach on the pitch for Moyes. However, his future as a player beyond this season remains unclear.

“When you get to his age, any decision about carrying on is left until the end of the season,” the Scot told reporters. “Don’t forget, he’s on the coaching staff anyway, but if he feels he wants to continue next season I’ll be more than happy with that. Ryan is undoubtedly at the top of any list of Premier League legends, for all sorts of reasons.”

“Because of his longevity, playing his entire career at a club like Manchester United, the amount of games he has played in Europe and the Premier League and the fact that he has provided so many outstanding memories every single season.”


David Moyes said that any new deal with Ryan Giggs should not be rushed into.

“It is terrific to be doing it at his age, and it is an example to young players everywhere to see how far you can go with the right dedication.

“It is also an example to players in their mid-30s, who may be wondering whether they are coming to the end of the road, to see that if you keep training well and looking after yourself, you can carry on longer.”
