Ryan Giggs: Winning the Premier League and Champions League with Manchester United - Masterclass
In the first of two exclusive Masterclasses, Ryan Giggs talks about his role within Sir Alex Ferguson's first Premier League title-winning team, and in their historic treble-winning side.
During his 24 years as a Manchester United player, Ryan Giggs won the Premier League 13 times – a record for an outfield player.
His first league title came in the 1992/93 season, as Manchester United beat nearest rivals Aston Villa by 10 points. Giggs talks about his combination play with Denis Irwin down the left side, and linking up with Mark Hughes and Erik Cantona in the middle of the pitch.
Six years later, the Red Devils won the league again, and added the FA Cup and Champions League in an unprecedented treble. The Welshman reflects on a period where he started to switch up his game, explaining how he developed as a player to become less reliant on his pace.
Giggs also reveals the toughest full-backs he faced in his long career, and what made them so effective.
