Evergreen Giggs plays on
London - Manchester United's long-serving midfielder Ryan Giggs has signed a one-year contract extension with the Premier League giants, it was confirmed on Friday.
Giggs, who turned 37 in November, had already signalled his intention to prolong his Old Trafford career into a 21st season, and the club confirmed Friday the deal had now been signed.
"All I've ever wanted to do is play for United and I've been lucky enough to do that for 20 years," said Giggs.
"It is great to know I'm still contributing to the team's success and I feel I've got a lot to offer on and off the pitch.
"This is an exciting time to be involved with so many good young players coming through."
United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has used Giggs selectively in recent seasons, although the evergreen midfielder has maintained his knack of making important contributions to the United cause.
His exquisite pass set up Nani's opening goal in the Manchester derby last week, a match United won to maintain their healthy lead at the top of the table. If United win the league it will give Giggs a record 12 league winners medals.
Giggs has made more than 800 appearances for United and recently played his 600th Premier League game.
