Giggsy names the best he played with
We asked Giggsy to name the best he played with and the United legend offered two huge names...
Who’s the best player you’ve played with and against? The best player is Cristiano [Ronaldo] but obviously he was only with us for a short space of time when he was brilliant and then went on to do just as well as he did at United elsewhere. But Scholesy is the best player I played with at United. You’ve all seen him. In training he was ridiculous, you couldn’t get near him. His brain was quicker than everyone else, his range of passing and he was nasty! [Smiles] If someone had taken the mickey out of him it was logged in the brain. Whether it be that training session or a week later or even six months later, he’d get you back! You’d think you’d got him in training and then he’d just pop the ball off and give the little feign, he was just brilliant in training. The hardest player I played against was [Javier] Zanetti from Inter Milan. He ran all day and he used to be a midfielder so he was comfortable on the ball, he could defend, he was tough and he actually broke my nose in the quarter-finals against them. He had everything as a defender.
