Ryan Giggs has signed a new one-year deal at Manchester United that commits him to the club until June 2011, beyond his 20th anniversary in the first team. The Welshman, voted 2009 BBC Sports Personality of the Year award last week, has won more medals than any other player in British football history.
“Ryan deserves a new contract and I am sure that he will play for another two years,” said manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
“His form is fantastic at the moment and he is playing some of his best football.”
Giggs, who has won 11 Premier League titles, two European Cups, four FA Cups and countless personal awards in a glittering career, is excited about the new deal.
“I am delighted that I have agreed one more year,” said the winger.
“I am enjoying my football more than ever and I am looking forward to hopefully winning more trophies with United.”
