Giggs signs for 23rd straight season with United

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has signed a one-year

contract extension, committing him to the English Premier League

club for a 23rd straight season.

The only player to score in every Premier League season he

played, the 38-year-old Giggs made his first-team debut in March

1991 and has never played for another club.

He beat Bobby Charlton’s long-standing appearance record in the

2008 Champions League final and has played 898 matches for United,

140 more than Charlton.

United manager Alex Ferguson says ”he has constantly reinvented

himself, adapted to the changing nature of the game and retained

that desire and hunger for success.”
