The story of a phenomenon - Experience, by SAM johnstone

It feels like Ryan has been playing forever - he made his debut before I was even born! To stay at the very top for over 23 years is amazing and his achievements at United have been unbelievable. There aren't many other words you can use to describe what he has achieved and what he has done for the club.

Everybody knows what great shape he kept himself in. He would eat well, work hard and that’s what has kept him going. That's also a great example to the young players at the club. Even for myself, a goalkeeper, that kind of experience and the way he conducts himself has made him a role model to me and all the young players at the club.

He's brilliant for the young players. He's always there to help and give you advice. He'll tell you when you've done well and he'll also tell you when you need to work on something… and he'll have a laugh with you too. He'll tell you straight about something and you always listen, why wouldn't you? It's Ryan Giggs and he has done everything there is to be done in the game. He's a legend at the club and well respected everywhere he goes with United, and that tells you all you need to know.
