15-year old Giggs’ destiny

Giggs & Fergie

Sir Alex Ferguson talked about how the Man Utd coaches were amazed at the potential of Ryan Giggs when he was training at the age of 15 for Manchester United. All coaches could see that the young Ryan was destined for greatness. The Welsh loyal player has now broken Sir Bobby Charlton’s record of most appearance in the Man Utd shirt.


“He ran across the pitch and he was so light I don’t think his feet touched the ground. It was like watching a cocker spaniel chasing a bit of silver paper in the wind. We were all like, ‘wow’. When he got to 15 we put him against Viv Anderson in training.”

“Viv was going, ‘Boss, what are you doing? He’s a small kid, you can’t do this…’ Then Ryan got the ball – bom, bom, bom – and Viv’s going, ‘Jesus Christ!’ That’s Ryan – he was a phenomenal kid and now he’s a phenomenal man.” – Sir Alex Ferguson
