Post your comment about Ryan Giggs

 When I signed my first contract, I never thought I'd be able to play at United for 22 years, but I feel good and I know I can still contribute to keeping the team pushing for honours. Winning the club's 19th title was a great feeling but this club is all about what we do next and I'm really pleased I can be part of that.

 All I’ve ever wanted to do is play for United and I’ve been lucky enough to do that for 20 years. It’s great to know I’m still contributing to the team’s success and I feel I’ve got a lot to offer on and off the pitch. This is an exciting time to be involved with so many good young players coming through.

 Tackles will go flying in. You can’t get away with tackles like you used to, but all players know the importance of the game. You don’t tend to leave the house for about a week if you lose. If you’ve lost one, you’ll be walking down the street and a City fan will come and let you know about it. But that’s me being a local lad and living around the area.

 Obviously when you lose quality players you are going to miss them. At United, we’ve lost quality players in the past and the club moves on, but Carlos was certainly a quality player.

 The crowd will light up. It’s usually a quick game and it’s usually a ferocious game, so hopefully it’s the kind of game that sets us back on the winning trail. No matter how the teams are doing, it’s always the big game of the season. It’s always the one you look forward to, the atmosphere will be brilliant here and all the players will be up for it. 
— Ryan Giggs believes Manchester United has to beat Liverpool this weekend to gather momentum / September 16, 2010

 You just feel that intensity when you play Liverpool, no matter how they are doing. Chelsea and Arsenal are big games – but a local derby against Liverpool and the history between the two clubs makes it special.

 He’s made a big impression. He’s still learning the game, not only on the pitch, but off it too. He’s a bubbly character and he’s great to have around the dressing room. It’s been a lot easier to get to know him because he speaks perfect English. He joined us on tour which always helps a player settle, and we saw first hand how big he is in Mexico. He looks a great acquisition, both on and off the pitch. 
— Ryan Giggs praising Javier Hernandez's impact in his debut match at Manchester United / August 24, 2010
 The Premier League is probably the most important after losing the title by a point last season. We lost far too many last year. They were games we were capable of winning too. That was the most disappointing thing. You know you are going to slip-up during a season, and every away game is going to be tough, but you have to limit the mistakes.

 My aim would be to manage either Manchester United or Wales. I don't think I'll know whether I'll cope with the aggravation until I've finished playing and say 'what do I do now?' 
— Ryan Giggs wants to manage either Manchester United or Wales after his playing days are over / August 16, 2010
 Football is such a massive part of my life and to just stop in your late 30s and do nothing is tough. Even though there is so much stress involved, I think a lot of players become managers and really enjoy it. I think Roy Keane really enjoys it.
