Ryan Mighty!!

Sir Alex Ferguson insists Ryan Giggs has simply continued where he left off last season following a string of impressive displays this term.

On the back of curling home a brilliant free-kick in the victory at Spurs and keeping up his record of having scored in every Barclays Premier League season, the midfield veteran produced an awe-inspiring display in last weekend’s Manchester derby playing a part in all four of United goals.

Sir Alex says the way Giggs, now 35, has maintained his high level of performance is ‘remarkable,’ and points to the Welshman’s hard work off the pitch, as well as on it, as the key to his success.

"The horrible part of being a footballer is that at some stage you are finished with the game — age catches us all. When someone like Ryan is playing at the level he is at, he realises to stay there, he has to prepare himself in the right way. He has to look after himself and do the right things,” explained the boss at his Friday press conference.

“It’s a lot to do with how he lives his life and prepares for games, and he’s helped by the fact he’s got a good physique. He has never carried any weight and has always been a slim athlete.

"It is not a matter of him defying his age. It is more a case that there is no discernable deterioration in his game at all. It is remarkable. I don't know what else there is to say about him. His form is just the same as it was last season.”
