Giggs says he owes it all to yoga.
“The yoga has definitely helped me. It helps me train every day because it gives me the flexibility and the strength, not only to play the game but to train as well,” he said. “I rarely miss a training session, even (if I do) a little less than the younger players I still go out and train.”
Man-U legend Dennis Irwin said Giggs began practicing yoga in his 20s when he had hamstring problems, adding: “That sorted it out”.
Giggs, the most decorated player in English soccer with 12 Premier League winners’ medals, isn’t about to hang up his boots. On Friday, Man-U manager Alex Ferguson, who is a big fan of Giggs, said the player had signed a contract to carry on playing next season.
“He still retains that wonderful youthfulness in the way he plays, he still has great balance and a change of pace,” Ferguson said. “He still has his fitness and he still gets you a goal.
