Ferguson urges Giggs to stay on at Man United

6:13 am on 27 December 2011

The Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has urged winger Ryan Giggs to extend his contract with the Premier League football champions for another season.

Giggs, 38, is the most decorated player in United's history and last week he revealed plans to sit down with Ferguson before deciding whether to continue playing after this campaign.

Giggs, who hold the club's appearance record having played in 891 games while scoring 161 goals since signing for United in 1990, remains a key player for Ferguson and showed his class once again during the 5-0 win at Fulham on Thursday.
