Giggs Happy With New Contract

Last updated : 13 November 2007 By editor

Ryan Giggs, "I was pleased to get the contract sorted because it means I can just get on with my football over the next 18 months or so. Winning the Champions League again is definitely a big aim and it would be nice to win a 10th title. The main thing is just to enjoy my football but you only really do that when you are winning trophies."

Giggs is also, understandably, looking to surpass Sir Bobby Charlton's appearance record, "It will be a great personal honour. To play so many games for the club you have supported all your life and pass the total of probably the greatest player the club has ever had would be brilliant. It is something I don't really like talking about until it has happened but given that the landmark is getting close, it would be great to do it.

"Sitting out the occasional match is something I have come to terms with. At 33, you can't play every game but I should get the benefit towards the end of the season, when I hope to still be fresh and on top of my form. Getting these breaks and the odd rest doesn't just prolong your career, it keeps you fresh for the games you are involved in."
