The Welshman, who recently signed a new one year deal with Manchester United, will turn 40 in November. With 933 appearances for the club under his belt, Giggs is well on course to break the 1,000th game mark in a Red Devils kit.
Ferguson applauded the veteran stalwart for achieving such longevity in his career.
"Ryan Giggs is an exceptional human being, he's lucky in some respects that he's never carried any weight,"
"He's also never had a serious injury. Taking that apart, the sacrifices he has med throughout his career have been absolutely phenomenal."
The United manager also revealed that Giggs has managed to maintain the same level of hunger and enthusiasm throughout his time at Old Trafford, tipping the heavily decorated player to kick on after his 41st birthday next year.
"He never misses a training session, he's still at the head of the pack when we do pre-season, he's just got that insatiable appetite to keep playing," Ferguson shared.
"I think he'll play next year, and, who knows? He could possibly have one year after that. He's 40 in November and I'm sure he'll get to 41 and still be playing because he's such a fit lad and a phenomenal man."
Giggs may feature for Manchester United when the team travel to Sunderland for their Premier League game on Saturday.
