Giggs Thinking About Retirement

Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs admits his time as a player is coming to an end.

The former Wales international, who is currently attending the FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey as part of his UEFA Pro Licence course, admits his attention is turning to what he will do when he finishes playing.

"I am in the process of doing that and obviously coming on this course has helped me - speaking to other people, listening to what the coaches or tutors say, and just trying to get little bits that can help you," said Giggs.

"Everyone has their own style and everyone picks up different things. Obviously, I'd be stupid not to pick up on the stuff I've learnt from Sir Alex.

"I don't know whether I am going to be a coach or a manager, if I decide to go into coaching, but it is obviously exciting for me. I have been playing for 20-odd years and it is a new chapter in my life."

Giggs is about to start his 24 season with the club, and confesses while challenges lie ahead for new manager David Moyes, he is confident the team will continue to win trophies.

"I think it is a challenge and as a player you always want challenges," added Giggs.

"First and foremost, there are great players there and we have just won the league, so everything is in place for it to carry it on."
