Ahead of his likely 1000th competitive game this weekend if he plays against Norwich, Ryan Giggs has been rewarded with another one year extension on his current contract.

“I am feeling good, enjoying my football more than ever and, most importantly, I feel I am making a contribution to the team,” said Giggs. “This is an exciting team to be part of, with great team spirit, and we are again pushing for trophies as we head towards the business end of the season. I am delighted to have signed a new contract. I would like to thank Sir Alex and the coaching staff and I would also like to thank David Gill who has been a tremendous support over my many years here.”

At the beginning of the season, when Giggs was used in a central role, it appeared as though this would be his last season for United, following a string of poor performances. However, since being used on the wing again in recent months his form has improved dramatically.
