Ryan Joseph Giggs, OBE is a Welsh football coach and former player who is currently the assistant manager at Manchester United and co-owner of Salford City.
Giggs made his first appearance for the club during the 1990–91 season and was a regular player from the 1991–92 season.
He established himself as a left winger during the 1990s, and continued in this position well into the 2000s, though he was increasingly used in a deeper playmaking role in his later years.
Giggs was known for his tireless running, ball possession and ability to create goalscoring opportunities for those around him.
At the end of the 2013–14 season, Giggs was named as Manchester United's interim player-manager of Manchester United following the sacking of David Moyes, before being named as assistant manager under Moyes' permanent replacement, Louis van Gaal, on 19 May.
Giggs announced his retirement from playing that same day in an open letter on the Manchester United website.
Giggs is the most decorated player in Welsh and English football history.
He also holds the club record for competitive appearances.
