Everyone is amazed by Ryan Giggs even Hull City goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic who apologized to the veteran for saving his free-kick in what possibly is his last outing at Old Trafford as a player. 

The interim manager came on for fellow Welshman Tom Lawrence 20 minutes from the the final whistle and prepared to take a free kick shortly after.

Giggs unleashed a powerful left-footed shot but was denied a goal by Jakupovic who managed to get gloves on the ball.

Manchester United supporters tried to convince Jakupovic to allow Giggs to score by chanting ‘Keeper, keeper, let it in’ but the Bosnian paid no heed to their words as he already let in teenage striker James Wilson, who scored twice on his debut, and Robin Van Persie.

The 29-year-old was booed by the Old Trafford faithful for saving the shot but made amends by apologizing to Giggs.

Giggs had previously stated that it would be a dream to score the winner against Hull City but alas this was not to be. He holds a record of having scored in every season of the Premier League since it’s inception barring the current one. United fans have plenty of great memories of him in a red shirt even if he doesn’t get this goal scoring record.
