Giggs Looking To Help Bale

In his role as Wales manager, Ryan Giggs has said that he will look to help Real Madrid's Gareth Bale steer clear of injuries. Giggs managed to play on until he was 40, after suffering a spate of niggling injuries early on in his career. If that fails, Giggs could always turn to Felix Magath to help Bale out with any injury problems he may have. Still, that would still be better than having Giggs giving out advice over family matters.
