Giggs eyes 1000 game landmark

Manchester United stalwart Ryan Giggs is hopeful he can reach a landmark 1000 games for the club before he retires.

Giggs has made 904 appearances for United since making his debut for the club 22 years ago, a club record that will take some beating. The 38-year-old has revealed he is not considering retiring any time soon, however - with a four-figure milestone firmly in his thinking.

The former Wales international has played 20 of United's 30 Premier League matches so far this season, and agreed a one-year contract extension at Old Trafford last month.

"It's nice to have played 900 games for Manchester United -- that's special," Giggs said, in a interview with Gazzetta Dello Sport. "But I don't look too far into the future - I just try and enjoy the moment and do my best.

"If it's to be 10 more games then so be it. If it's to be 100 more games then that would be great."

When asked what he plans to do when he does finally hang up his boots, Giggs acknowledged that he hoped to stay in the game in a coaching capacity - although he stopped short of suggesting he will look to manage the club he has represented for over two decades.

"At the moment I'm focused on playing but I will be involved in football afterwards," he said. "I've done my coaching badges and done all I can to prepare myself for life after football. "But to manage a team like Manchester United? [Pep] Guardiola's done it at Barcelona but even he was the coach of their 'B' team for a couple of years. He had a little bit of experience managing so we'll have to see.

"My goal when I was younger was to play for Manchester United just once. "But then after that you get greedy. You want to be in the team all the time. Then you want to score goals. Then you get really greedy - you want to win trophies and then you win more trophies.

"All these things have happened to me - I realised my dream and at 38 I'm still living my dream. You can't ask for much more."

With observers continuing to marvel at his fitness after so many years in the game, Giggs underlined how seriously he takes the job of keeping his body in peak condition - as well as the importance of adapting his style of play to cope with the things he can no longer do.

"Yoga has definitely helped me. It helps me with training because it gives me the flexibility and the strength to not only play games but train every day," he said. "I rarely miss a training session even if I do a little bit less than the younger players.

"You have to change your way of thinking. I was a quick player when I was younger but now I'm not as quick.

"So you have to use your intelligence and experience on the pitch to adapt your game and change your game - which I have done."

Giggs has won countless trophies during his time with United, including 12 Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, two Champions Leagues, one Super Cup, an Intercontinental Cup and a FIFA Club World Cup
