Ryan Giggs will be playing for Manchester United in to his 40’s after winning his thirteenth title this season. He obviously can’t go on forever and believes that the young players coming through need to make their mark on the team.
“I have seen so many young players over the years have a chance and not really take it,” he said. “Others think ‘this is my chance I am going to make sure the manager takes notice’ and they perform like they have been doing in the youth team or the reserves. Nick Powell did it earlier this season. He came on against Wigan and scored. That is what young players have to do.”
