Giggs Enjoying Central Midfield Role

Manchester United star Ryan Giggs has told the press he is thoroughly enjoying his new central midfield role this season.

Over the years, Giggs has starred on United’s left wing, but due to turning 34 this season, manager Sir Alex Ferguson has called time on the Welshman’s wide rampages.

Now Giggs is being deployed in a central midfield role, where he can use his experience and read the game – in the process prolonging his career.

And the ten-time Premier League winner has said he has no problems in his new role and his enjoying the challenge.

"It is not a role I am unfamiliar with because I played in midfield when I was younger," he said to the press.

"I just try to use my experience. I don't think some players are used to opponents trying to take them on in central midfield, so that can work to my advantage,” Giggs added.

"Maybe I will still play the odd game on the wing but it is difficult to play there when you are not getting up and down.

"The manager sees me in a different role, so this is something that has been developing over the last three or four years."

Giggs also stated he is perfectly happy with being regularly rotated in and out of the side as Ferguson tries to look after his aging body.

"It is not a problem. I am playing in matches here and there suits me fine,” he said.

"As long as I know which games I will be playing in, I can prepare myself in training. I accept I am not going to play every week."

Giggs set for new deal

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed the club plans to offer veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs a new contract at Old Trafford.

The 35-year-old's current deal is due to expire at the end of the season, and the midfielder has hinted he could retire in May.

However, after continuing to impress in his 19th year at Old Trafford, Ferguson plans to extend the Welshman's stay.

The Scot told the Sunday Mirror: "Ryan will be offered a new contract of course. He has been fantastic for us this season - he seems to be getting even better with age.

"He could win the Footballer of the Year award and it would be fitting if he did after the career he has had.

"He seems to be one of those rare people who find that age and injuries don't catch up with them."
