Man United plan to retire Ryan Giggs' number

Sunday, April 5, 2009

Manchester United are considering retiring their No 11 shirt when its current owner, Ryan Giggs, finally calls it a day.

According to News of the World, unofficial talks have been held by the United board to commemorate the career of the most successful player in the club's history.

There have been many legendary players for the Red Devils, but the Welshman has won more medals than anyone else and has played more times for the club than anyone ever has or probably ever will.

In a 19-year career span, he has won 10 Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two Champions League trophies, three League Cups, one UEFA Super Cup, one Inter Continental Cup and one Club World Cup, making him the most decorated player in English football history.

A club insider said: "Although people may talk of George Best, Denis Law and Bobby Charlton, they played in an era when such moves were impossible as shirts were numbered 1-11.

"Retiring the number 11 shirt would have no complaints from many United fans - though on current form Ryan's departure looks to be quite a way off yet."
