I Will Help End Gareth Bale’s Injury Record – Ryan Giggs

By  |  0 Comments

Former Manchester United legend and new Wales manager Ryan Giggs believes his fitness expertise will help end Gareth Bale’s injury record.

The Real Madrid superstar has suffered 18 separate muscular problems since signing for the Spanish giants for a then world record deal five years ago.

He has had another injury-hit season at Real Madrid, calf and groin problems limiting him to six starts in La Liga.

The 28-year-old also missed Wales’ final two 2018 World Cup qualifiers as they failed to reach this summer’s finals in Russia.

“It’s about passing on your knowledge that you experienced as a player,” said former Manchester United winger Giggs.

Giggs himself turned to yoga as he prolonged a stellar career at United beyond his 40th birthday.

“I’ve got plenty of that [experience] obviously, the different things you will come up against,” said Giggs.

“So that might be a conversation, because everyone wants a fit Gareth Bale, and everyone wants a fit Welsh national team.”

Giggs, appointed as Chris Coleman’s successor on a four-year deal, will head to Switzerland on Wednesday for the Uefa Nations League draw.
