Ryan Giggs Biography

Ryan Joseph Giggs is a Welsh footballer who plays for Manchester United. Giggs made his first appearance for the club during the 1990–91 season and has been a regular player since the 1991–92 season. He established himself as a left winger during the 1990s, continued in this position well into the 2000s and increasingly got involved in a deeper playmaking role in his latter years. Giggs is the most decorated player in English football history. During his time at United, he has won 12 Premier League winner's medals, four FA Cup winner's medals, three League Cup winner's medals and two Champions League winner's medals. He also has two runner-up medals from the Champions League, three FA Cup finals and two League Cup finals, as well as the honor of being part of the team five times when it finished second in the Premier League. Giggs has captained the team on numerous occasions, particularly in the 2007–08 season. Besides these laurels, he has a number of personal achievements. He was the first player in history to win two consecutive PFA Young Player of the Year awards (1992 and 1993), though he did not win the PFA Player of the Year award until 2009. He is the only player to have played and scored in every completed season of the Premier League. He was elected into the PFA Team of the Century in 2007, the Premier League Team of the Decade in 2003, as well as the FA Cup Team of the Century. He was the captain of the Great Britain team that competed at 2012 Summer Olympics. He was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2005, for his services to English Football. He was named as BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2009. On 31 January 2011, Giggs was named Manchester United's greatest ever player by a worldwide poll conducted by United's official magazine and website. The same year Giggs was honoured with the 2011 Golden Foot Award.
