David Moyes hails Ryan Giggs
Ryan Giggs has received an early 40th birthday present in the form of a glowing tribute from United boss David Moyes.
The veteran Reds hero will enter his fifth decade on Friday, 29th November, over 22 and a half years after he made the first of his 951 appearances so far for United.
The Welshman’s latest milestone will follow hot on the heels of United’s visit to his birthplace, Cardiff, for the return to action following the latest pause in the domestic programme to allow for international fixtures.
Giggs has made 10 appearances in all competitions under David Moyes this season, and the boss says the United no. 11 has exceeded his expectations
“The best thing is to say he doesn't play like he's 40 and he doesn't look like he's 40,” enthused Moyes. “He's an outstanding player and it's a privilege to be working with him on my staff but also to have him as a player.
“I’ve seen something different since I’ve come here – just how good he is, close up – and it’s incredible. It will be great for him to go back to Cardiff and I'm sure the supporters will give him a big cheer.”
