Giggs: I'll play on next season
RYAN GIGGS has confirmed he plans to extend his Manchester United career into another season.
The 37-year-old has been playing on season-long contracts for a number of years now.
There were suggestions he may hang up his boots at the end of this campaign.
United boss Alex Ferguson has offered high praise for Giggs' recent performances.
And the veteran Welshman has now revealed his desire to continue into 2012.
He said: "I am quite happy still playing at the moment and enjoying my football as much as ever.
"I said if I was still enjoying myself and still getting picked I would carry on.
"We will sit down and talk but I am really looking forward to playing next year."
United chief executive David Gill has already revealed the club will give Giggs another contract.
But the winger added: "I don't know when it will be sorted out.
"We have been quite relaxed about it over the years but it is usually done and dusted quite quickly."
Giggs has impressed Ferguson this season - his 21st for the Old Trafford side.
And Giggs said: "It is good to hear praise from the manager.
"He would be the first one to tell me if I was not playing well or my form wasn't good.
"We talk a lot more and we are a lot more honest with each other.
"He tells me when I am not going to play and gives me a little bit more notice now.
"It is a great relationship and one that has been a big part of why I am still playing."
