Ryan Giggs reveals what Robin van Persie did better than anyone else at Manchester United
Ryan Giggs says he had a special telepathy with Robin van Persie which was like no other at Manchester United.
The Welsh legend played with a number of superstars during his time at Old Trafford but says his partnership with Van Persie stood out for special reasons.
In a recent interview the current Wales manager spoke about his transition from playing as a winger into a central midfielder, and in particular how he linked up with the forwards.
Giggs began by hailing the exploits of Javier Hernandez up-front before moving onto Van Persie and his natural understanding of the role.
"Robin van Persie was the best," Giggs told The Coaches' Voice.
"I mean the amount of goals, and the chances, that I tried to make for Robin. Because he knew, 'Giggsy when you get it on your left foot, I am peeling off to run into there (behind the defence).'
"I knew as soon as I got the ball, without even looking sometimes, I am playing the ball here, over the left centre-half's head. I am not worrying where he is, I am not even looking where he is, because I know that is where he is going to end up. So I don't need to look. I just need to play the ball in behind the left centre-half."
