Ryan’s favourite Arsenal players
Giggs is quick to acknowledge that great games often need great opponents. When asked to pick the three Arsenal players he most admires from the many he has faced since 1991, he chose an England stalwart and two of the league’s best-ever imports.
“You’d have to say Thierry Henry. He was one of the Premier League’s great players. He scored great goals, he had great physique and speed and on his day he was just unstoppable. You can add Dennis Bergkamp as well because he was a really intelligent player.
“Tony Adams is the other one. He was very tough to play against, especially at Highbury – you always knew you had to be at your best against that defence. It had so much experience.”
