Ryan Giggs says he is already looking forward to achieving more success with Manchester United this season.

The 39-year-old, who penned a one-year contract extension in April, won his 13th Premier League title in May, scoring two goals and making three assists in 22 top-flight appearances.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s replacement David Moyes has already signed up Giggs as a player-coach this term, and the Welshman is relishing the challenge of defending the club’s league crown.

“Things have been going great to so far and everyone is working hard,” Giggs told United’s website.

“Personally, I feel good. I shut down for about three weeks after the season finished but then started going in the gym a couple of times on holiday after that and also did a bit of swimming and a few runs. I was also in Turkey doing my coaching badges with Gary [Neville] so we were training partners which was good.

“I enjoyed the summer and if you compare it to last year they’re like chalk and cheese. It’s obviously great to win the league and you can enjoy your summer knowing you’re champions, but as it goes on you’re itching to get back – you want that challenge again and you can’t wait for the season to start.

“Of course, you need that rest after a tough season but two or three weeks into your holiday you’re already thinking about coming back and achieving more.”
