When Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down from the Manchester United helm it was a sad day. But we can all agree that Ryan Giggs retiring is an even sadder one.
The Welshman has been ‘tearing teams apart’ since 1991, winning everything there is to win in club football.
13 Premier League titles, 4 FA Cups, 3 League Cups, 2 UEFA Champions Leagues, and one FIFA Club World Cup… amongst other individual accolades.
And team-mates, fans, and rivals, have all tweeted their respects for the living Legend.

The only top flight player remaining that I actually played against has called it a day. Makes me feel rather ancient. #ryangiggs

Ryan Giggs retires today….so many gold medals he puts B.A. Baracus to shame! No player adapted their game as well & as effective as Giggsy
