Manchester United is pleased to announce that Ryan Giggs has today extended his contract for a further season until the end of June 2009.


Ryan has 18 major titles to his name including 9 Premier League titles, 4 FA Cups, 2 League Cups and 1 European Cup. He made his United debut at Old Trafford on 2nd March 1991 against Everton and has played 727 matches to date - making him second only to Sir Bobby Charlton (759) in most appearances for the Club - and scored 141 goals.

Sir Alex Ferguson said: “I am absolutely delighted that Ryan has signed for a further season. Ryan Giggs epitomises the word loyalty, he signed here as a 14-year old school boy and is still with the club 20 years on. Apart from his playing ability he has a fantastic demeanour and is a great role model to the younger players. I am sure he will be at the Club for a long time to come.”

Ryan Giggs said: “I am delighted to have signed for a further season. I am enjoying football more than ever and I hope to carry on playing football for Manchester United for as long as I can. I would like to thank Sir Alex, the fans and everyone at the Club for the great support I have received over the years.”

He'll be at United for many more years to come. I'm sure when he retires as a player he'll be offered a coaching role at the club. What a player he's been for us!

Legend. He deserves his contract. I sure he will go on to beat Bobbys record and break into the top 10 record goalscorers of all time for United!
My best memory of Giggs is when Vieira gave him the ball on the half way line. We all know what happened then.........

How can you say that mate?

I know he's not playing at his best right now but at times he was sublime last year and his experience will help the younger kids in our side aswell. I don't think on current form he should be a starter but he is more than deserving of a new contract.

He has given fantastic service to our club since he was 14, its the least he deserves.

United delight at Giggs deal
11 hours ago

Manchester United chief executive David Gill has confirmed his contract
negotiations with Ryan Giggs were among the easiest he has ever carried out.

Only three weeks after Giggs confirmed tentative talks had begun over an
extension to his present deal, talks have reached a successful conclusion, and
the winger's new contract will keep him at Old Trafford until 2009, extending his
first-team career with the Red Devils to an incredible 18 years.

For Gill, such longevity is worthy of praise in itself, and he told MUTV: "They were
not the most difficult negotiations. In the modern-day game, someone who is
loyal to the club - from junior to senior ranks - and who has 18 trophies is very
important."

He added: "Quite rightly, he is respected through the game - with what he has
achieved, and how he has achieved it.

"Everyone can recognise that he is a true gentleman and a true ambassador for
this great game and this great club."
