United to give Giggs ambassador role

Ryan Giggs will be offered a job for life with Manchester United.

The long-serving Wales winger will be handed a new one-year contract when his current deal runs out at the end of next season.

And when Giggs, 33, finally decides to retire, United will ask him to become an ambassador for the club. In that role he would travel around the world promoting United's image and business brand.

Former United great Sir Bobby Charlton, a club director, is already employed in that capacity. Giggs is the longest-serving player in United's squad, having made his debut in 1991, and has won more medals than anyone in the club's history.

Giggs is also just 43 appearances shy of equalling Charlton's club record of 759 - which he is set to pass if he agrees to United's offer of a one-year contract extension.

Giggs has admitted his place is under threat following the arrivals of both Nani and Anderson during the summer. But Ferguson is clearly looking for Giggs to play on with United at least up until the age of 35.

He fully deserves this imo. :)

I fully agree, Giggs has been a model proffessional throughout his career, even during his early years when temptation is at large. I suppose that SAF is highly responsible for this as well. It would be nice for him to still be associated with us and ironically remain on a similar par to that of Sir Bobby, a fitting tribute to any human being.

Ryan Giggs is a legend. The role will be fully deserved, if he wants to do it! I think he can get around 30 appearances(or at least starts) this season in all competitions, so hopefully at some stage of next season he can surpass Bobby's wonderful record.
