We are fast running out of words to describe how brilliant Ryan Giggs is, so we thought we’d use numbers and pictures instead.

The Welshman, who signed a new one-year contract with Manchester United on 1 March (appropriately, St David's Day) has now played in 1,000 senior competitive matches for Manchester United, Wales and Great Britain. The 39-year-old keeps on knocking down records, but we think you’ll agree this one deserves special attention.

So in an exclusive ManUtd.com infographic, we’ve focused on telling the story – with the help of stats, graphs and charts – of how he got to this point after 22 years in the professional game.
