Ryan Giggs Had Some Lovely Things To Say About Denis Irwin In His All Time Man Utd XI

Every week, Sky Sports ask a current or former footballer to sit down and pick an XI based on the best players they've ever played with for a segment on their show 'The Fantasy Football Club'.

Sometimes they are good, sometimes they are bad, but when Ryan Giggs was asked to choose his team, you knew it was going to be strong, and sure enough, it's essentially the best possible Manchester United XI in recent history.





Giggs found room for his Class Of 92 buddies Gary Neville and Paul Scholes, but Nicky Butt and Phil Neville lost out to two Cork men in the shape of Roy Keane and Denis Irwin.


He also had a quick word on each selection he made, and his description of Denis Irwin was particularly enjoyable:

Another difficult one because I played with two brilliant left-backs - Denis Irwin and Patrice Evra. I just go for Denis because he was so consistent and he scored goals from penalties, free-kicks and open play and could also play with both feet.

He was perfect, in other words.


Giggs also heaped praise on Keane, calling him the best leader he ever played with and the first name on his team-sheet.
