Sir Alex Ferguson is among those who want to see Ryan Giggs winning the PFA Player of the Year award. Giggsy made the shortlist and the winner will be announced on Sunday.

‘I hope Ryan gets the PFA award,’ said Sir Alex.

‘He has played 30 games this season and the way we use squads nowadays, no-one plays in every game.

‘Hopefully he is rewarded for his contribution to the game. He thoroughly deserves it.’


His contribution to the game deserves any award – but not a Player of the Season award, especially when he played less games than ever before in the league. I just don’t think he should get it just because he’s Ryan Giggs. He’s a great ambassador of the game, a true model professional who is laden with medals. He simply doesn’t need this one…

And if we’re honest, Michael Carrick, Wayne Rooney and Nemanja Vidic all performed more consistently well this season than Ryan Giggs. An 11th league medal would be a much more fitting tribute to his greatness!
