Carrick & van Nistelrooy take to Twitter to praise Ryan Giggs after Man United’s Leverkusen rout
Ryan Giggs turns 40 on Friday.
On Wednesday evening the ageless Welsh wizard was sensational for Manchester United in the centre of midfield against Bayer Leverkusen.
Giggs pulled the strings in a midfield role alongside Phil Jones and made the side second in the Bundesliga look distinctly poor.
There are rumours doing the rounds on social networks that one of the Leverkusen centre backs asked Wayne Rooney how old Ryan Giggs is, so phenomenal was his performance for David Moyes’ side in Germany.
Two big players in Manchester United’s recent history also added to the praise coming from the likes of David Moyes and Phil Jones – Giggs’ partner in midfield – who is a staggering 19 years younger!
Ruud van Nistelrooy who was at the BayArena and Michael Carrick took to Twitter to marvel at Ryan Giggs after the game. Tweets below.
