Ryan Giggs' world record of victories eclipsed by Brazilian goalkeeper
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs’ world record for wins with a single a club has been broken by Brazilian goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni.
Giggs made his debut for United in 1990 and featured in 589 victories during his 24-year playing career before hanging up his boots last year to become the club’s assistant manager.
The Welshman’s haul of wins earned him a place in the Guinness Book of Records but Ceni has now gone one better after helping Sao Paulo defeat Goia 3-0 on Monday.
Ceni, who is Sao Paulo’s designated free-kick and penalty taker, already holds world records for the most goals scored by a keeper, number of games played for the same club and amount of times as captain.
The 41-year-old has scored 121 goals and clocked up over 1,000 appearances in his 22 years with Sao Paulo.
"These individual tags are very cool but it is nothing but work, day to day,” said Ceni.
“I am like any human being who marks 20 years in the same place. The hard part is staying in the same place for so long, I thank God for allowing me to do this."
