The former Wales international has called time on his glittering 24-year career at Old Trafford in order to become new Red Devils head coach Louis van Gaal’s No 2 in the north west next season.

And Giggs hangs up his boots after making an incredible 963 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring 168 goals, during which time the 40-year-0ld won 13 Premier League titles, four FA Cups, four League Cups, two Uefa Champions Leagues, one Uefa Super Cup, one Fifa Club World Cup, one Intercontinental Cup and nine FA Community Shields.

“Today is a new chapter filled with many emotions – immense pride, sadness, but most of all, excitement,” said Giggs.

“My dream was always to play for Manchester United.

“Although it saddens me to know I won’t be pulling on a United jersey again as a player, I have been lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream playing with some of the best players in the world, working under an incredible manager in Sir Alex Ferguson and, most of all, playing for the greatest fans in world football.

“I am immensely proud, honoured and fortunate to have represented the biggest club in the world 963 times and Wales 64 times.

“United fans, I hope, will share and echo my belief that the club, the management and owners, are doing everything they can to return this great club to where it belongs. I hope to be there every step of the way.”
