Former Premier League Player Launches Weird Attack On Ryan Giggs

Former Premier League Player Launches Weird Attack On Ryan Giggs

Ryan Giggs ended his career as one of the most decorated players ever to play the game. Winning a remarkable 13 league titles, four FA Cups and two Champions Leagues, he experienced remarkable success with Manchester United.

Still, not everyone appreciates the winger. Former Premier League player Curtis Woodhouse took to Twitter to share his view that the Welshman was vastly overrated during his career.

Woodhouse, who played for the likes of Birmingham City and Sheffield United, said that a look at Giggs' stats proves that he was never a world class performer:

Ryan Giggs, another unbelievably overrated Manchester United player.

Outstanding longevity but in a team that dominated for years and were a free scoring machine his statistics for goals and assists is awful. Another Manchester United myth, good player, never anything more.

Giggs has 162 assists in the PL over 22 years to go with his 109 goals, again over 22 years. His team dominated them 22 years of football breaking scoring records as they went. Ryan Giggs was a left winger, looking at his stats you may confuse him with a left back.

Giggs didn’t even have a good left foot!! He was a outstanding athlete but his left foot wasn’t that good. His delivery was ok, not great, he couldn’t spray it about, he was a great athlete. Let’s keep it real.

Giggs was a good player. Steady away down the left hand side, great energy, great pace. Good player, just not a great player, never had a world class season in 22 attempts but still a good player. Never poor but never brilliant, a good steady player.
