London, Sep 26(ANI): Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has said that mid-fielder Ryan Giggs, who will turn 36 in November, is giving the best performance of his career because he is afraid of life without football.
Giggs displayed a magnificent performance during the Manchester Derby on last Sunday, in which Man U came out with a stunning 4-3 victory.
Ferguson also believes that Giggs is indulging in everything to hold back the years.
"They don't want to quit the game, but it happens. That's the horrible part of being a footballer. At some stage you're finished, age catches us all," The Sun quoted Ferguson, as saying.
"Ryan prepares the right way and looks after himself. He's helped by the fact he has the right physique and has never carried any weight," he added.
Giggs has played for Man U for his entire club career and holds the record for 568 appearances for the club. He had established himself as a left-winger during the 1990s and continued in this position well into the 2000s, but more recently has played in a deeper playmaking role.
Giggs will reach another milestone if he scores one more goal, as it would be his 100th goal in the Premier League. (ANI)
