Video: Vintage Giggs

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 12 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, one World Club Cup, one Super Cup, four FA Cups, three League Cups, a record 898 (and counting) appearances in more than two decades of service.

A freak of nature in the nicest possible way, Giggsy remains, if less fleet of foot nowadays, 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
