The Telegraph’s Henry Winter had this to say about Ryan Giggs following his performance against Derby last weekend in the FA Cup.
Winter: “An attacking zephyr, Giggs can resemble a sidewinder snake, zigzagging towards goal, trailing menace. As a human being, a touch of nobility defines him. Football is blessed to have Ryan Joseph Giggs OBE… No Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov or Carlos Tevez. No cutting edge? No chance. Giggs, playing as a central striker, dovetailing sweetly with Cristiano Ronaldo, tore Derby apart… Giggs may well prove to be the PFA Player of the Year; United’s ageless attacker will inevitably stir admiration among his peers and clubs reps often cast dressing-room votes en bloc.”
