Ryan Giggs Get PFA Player of the Year Award


Ryan Giggs has won the Professional Footballer’s Association Player of the Year Award. It may seem surprising but this is the first time he has won the award in his illustrious career. Most of the contenders for the award were his United team mates including Cristiano Roanldo, Nemanja Vidic, Van Der Sar, Rio Ferdinand and Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard.

Despite winning the Premiership Title 10 times, League Cup 3 times, FA cup four times, Champions League two times in his 18 year old career, the PFA award has always eluded the welsh man. Even though he has not started most of the match this season, he has played a key part in United’s important matches against Chelsea, Inter Milan etc. He has been mostly used in the central midfield role by when he lines up against Arsenal for his 800th match. It is an award in itself to play for a top team for more than 18 years. In spite of being 35 years, he has excelled in the midfield role which he is playing these days.

You have to be a special player if you can play for Manchester United for so long. Hats Off to him.
