Giggs: Secret to my success

RYAN Giggs has revealed he likes the rough stuff. The usually mild-mannered United star says there is nothing better than a training ground bust-up to keep him at the top of his game. The PFA Player of the Year has spent 19 glorious years at Old Trafford, winning 11 Premier League titles, two European Cups and four FA Cups. He is bidding to add to that incredible roll of honour as United seek to make it four successive titles this season. And the 35-year-old has now revealed the secret to his success. ?The best way to deal with fatigue is to get angry,? he said. ?The same goes for the rare occasions when training is a bit flat. ?You?ll see someone start an argument and that will get the session going again. Bust-ups ?It?s ridiculous when people go on about training ground bust-ups because it?s been like that every Friday for nearly 19 years I?ve played professional football. ?Training is so competitive the day before a game that there are always arguments.? Giggs looks in as good shape now as he did when he first burst onto the scene as a 17-year-old. And he says he has had to make sacrifices to keep performing at the highest level well into his 30s. ?After I turned 30 I decided to change my lifestyle a lot,? he said. ?Stop drinking and watch the food I ate. ?There wasn?t a specific moment. I just wanted to keep playing to the highest standard for as long as I could. ?I knew that would require certain sacrifices. ?During my 20s my favourite meal was steak and chips or chicken and chips. I didn?t even like fish when I was younger, but now if I go out I almost always have it.?
