United greats: Ryan Giggs

Continuing our 20-day showcase of suggestions for the Reds' greatest-ever player...

At first, Ryan Giggs was heralded as the new George Best... then he become a legend in his own right.

Where to start? Our most-decorated soldier with 11 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, one World Club Cup, one Super Cup, four FA Cups, three League Cups, 853 games (and counting) in two decades’ service. A freak of nature in the nicest possible way, Giggsy remains, if less fleet of foot of yore, as lean and hungry for success as they come. The best a Manc can get.

What they say: “He’s fantastic, a great athlete, a great person and a great footballer. Nobody deserves to break records like he does. Ryan’s record with Manchester United is unbelievable and I’m really proud of him." - Sir Bobby Charlton
