Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has suggested that he is not ready to retire from the game just yet and that it normally takes him until just after Christmas to make a decision on whether he can continue or not.
Giggs will turn 38 in November and whilst his age is getting higher, his performances have been of the highest quality with Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, believing he can get at least one more year out of the Welshman.
Giggs however admits he has been preparing for retirement for the last three or four years.
“I’ve probably thought about it for the last three or four years because you just never know when the body’s going to pack in. I have been preparing for it for it four years but I normally assess after Christmas how I’m feeling.”
The United winger added.
“If I feel I’m not influencing games, not scoring goals or making goals, then that’s the time I’d pack it in.”
If it does boil down to influence then one can very well imagine seeing Ryan Giggs on the ball for a few years yet.
