Ryan Giggs OBE holds an incredible number of football records, including being the Most Decorated Player in English football history and we're very proud to be honouring him with his very own cover!
The list of football records he holds is quite staggering: Only Manchester United player to have played in all eleven Premier League-winning teams and only player to win 11 league titles Only Manchester United player to have played in all three League Cup-winning teams Only Manchester United player to have played in both UEFA Champions League-winning teams Only player to have scored in eleven consecutive Champions League tournaments Only player to have scored in thirteen different Champions League tournaments Only player to have scored in every Premier League campaign since its inception Most appearances by a Manchester United player
Giggs won 64 International Caps for Wales, scoring 12 goals, before announcing his international retirement in June 2007, but that was far from the end of his playing career. In December that year, he was awarded the OBE for his Services to Football. He also scored his 100th league goal, as well as the winning penalty in the 2008 Champions League Final shoot-out. That night he also broke Sir Bobby Charlton's record of 758 Man Utd appearances.
In April 2009 he was named as the PFA Player's Player Of The Year and just three days later he made his 800th appearance for the club.
