Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs says he plans to open talks with Sir Alex Ferguson over a new one-year contract after Christmas.
The 37-year-old made his first appearance for United in 1991 against Everton at Old Trafford, and has since gone on to become one of the club’s most prolific players.
He has won numerous trophies, including 12 Premier League titles and two Champions League winners’ medals, and has continued his outstanding career this season by making eight appearances and netting two goals.
The United veteran was announced as the winner of the Golden Foot award for 2011 in Monte Carlo on Monday night, and the Welshman is keen to add to his 20-year career at the club by signing a new one-year deal.
“After Christmas I will go to Sir Alex Ferguson’s office and we’ll talk about my renewal,” he told calciomercato.com.
“I have a wonderful relationship with him. He’s an exceptional person. He is always the first to arrive in the morning and is always willing to listen.”
“I have spoken to him for a few minutes about extending my contract for another year.”
“I want to play again, I care for nothing more than playing for my team.”
