Ryan Giggs, Ryan Giggs, Running Down the Wing….

….For the past 20+ years!

The one and only Welsh Wizard (sorry Bale, not yet) has put pen to paper on a new one year contract with Manchester United.  As is tradition now at Old Trafford, veterans will only be signed for one year contracts.  A smart move from the perspective of the front office, obviously the older you get the more prone you will be to injury.  Perhaps the New York Yankees could learn a thing or two from United (cough, A-Rod, cough).

Giggs has far and away the most decorated career in Premier League history.  He has made 931 appearances for United, 64 caps for Wales, and 4 games played with Great Britain so on Saturday Giggs will make his 1,000th professional appearance. Unprecedented.  In his illustrious career, Giggs has amassed 12 Premier League titles, 4 FA Cups, 3 League Cups, 2 UEFA Champions League titles, 1 Super Cup, 1 Intercontinental Cup, and 1 Club World Cup.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, City as a team can’t hang with Giggsy.

Giggs signed with United in 1987, and will be with the club for years to come in one capacity or another.  Here’s a gallery of his time with United up to now.
