United should build a Ryan Giggs statue, says Berbatov

Saturday, February 14, 2009

Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov reckons the Red Devils will erect a statue outside Old Trafford to honour Ryan Giggs when the Welshman finally retires.

Welsh wizard Giggs signed a new one-year contract extension this week that will keep him at Old Trafford until he is 36.

Already the most decorated player in the English game, Giggs could claim his 11th Premier League title this season, and a possible third Carling Cup winner's medal.

Last week Giggs scored a stunning goal for United against West Ham that was the main topic of conversation at Bulgaria training ahead of their draw with Switzerland in Geneva.

And Berbatov is in no doubt the former Wales skipper is worthy of a lasting tribute at Old Trafford - alongside the statues of Sir Matt Busby and the legendary 'Holy Trinity' of George Best, Denis Law and Sir Bobby Charlton.

He told MUTV: "When I went back for the international, all my teammates said, 'What a goal, what a finish, what a player'.

"I said, 'I know, I train and play with him every day.'

"You can imagine what people say about Ryan Giggs. He has achieved so much. The goal he scored showed his quality when the team needed it.

"I am not the only one to speak about him really, Sir Alex (Ferguson) and the others know him very well. But how long has he been here? Nearly 20 years. That speaks for itself.

"He is one of the greatest players and some day they will put a statue of him outside the stadium."
