Ryan Giggs admits he is enjoying his football more than ever after breaking through the 900-game mark for United.
The Welshman continues to rewrite the record books and the 38-year-old is relishing performing for at least another season at the highest level for his boyhood idols.
"To play 900 games for Manchester United is obviously something to be proud of," he told MUTV. "Especially growing up as a United fan.
"When you start off, you just set yourself little goals - to get into the team and obviously to stay in the team. Then you get a little bit greedy and want to win things, and then win more things. I don't think you ever envisage you're going to play that many games.
"I'm enjoying my football more than ever. The club want me to carry on so I want to carry on. I'm hungry and still want to play. I look forward to next season - hopefully after winning something this season."
Giggs admits that witnessing first hand how much Scholes missed playing during his brief retirement period is at the back of his mind as he continues to prolong his own career.
"Seeing how much Scholesy missed it and seeing him now enjoying training and games, and playing so well, that is something I've got to think of as well," he conceded.
