Giggs backs record breaker Rooney
Published : 21 Mar 2010 13:10:49
Ryan Giggs reckons his appearance record will be short lived with Wayne Rooney the man to break it. The Welsh winger broke the senior appearances for United less than two years but says Rooney will have surpassed his total by the time he retires and will have overtaken Sir Bobby Charlton's all-time goals record for the club. Giggs told a Sunday newspaper: "If Wayne plays here, keeps fit and going for the next 10 years, then he will break every record. "He will break my appearance record and he will break Bobby Charlton's goalscoring record of 249 goals. I hope that is something he can do." Speculation is growing that Real Madrid will attempt to sign Rooney this summer, but Giggs cannot see the 24-year-old wanting to leave Old Trafford. He said: "Wayne is at the right place. He's got the best manager and at United you will always be competing for trophies, which is what you want as a footballer. "We have great players at United and he loves being here. I can see him staying."
