By the time Giggs made his Manchester United first team debut aged just 17, many considered him to be the greatest talent in English football since George Best. He made United's left wing his own until late in his career, when Sir Alex Ferguson switched him to a deeper role in central midfield. Famed for his pace and skill on the ball, Giggs has scored many vital goals, most notably his incredible solo effort in the 1999 FA Cup semi-final replay against Arsenal. He was an integral part of the historic Treble-winning side in 1999, and is the only Manchester United player to have played in both the 1999 and 2008 Champions League victories. Having committed his entire career to United, Giggs eclipsed Bobby Charlton's record in April 2009, when he made his 800th appearance for the club. That year also brought his 11th Premier League winner's medal - he is the only player to have scored in every Premier League campaign since its inception - and the PFA Player of the Year award. Giggs has scored over 150 goals for United and his incredible record has ensured that he will go down in history as one of the club's greatest ever players.
