Ryan Giggs Retires

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has pulled down the curtain on a 23-year playing career by announcing his retirement as he becomes new manager's Louis van Gaal's assistant.
The 40-year-old has called time on his footballing career after a club-record 963 matches, and will now focus exclusively on his duties as assistant to new boss Louis van Gaal.
Giggs played a club record 963 matches for United since making his debut in March 1991, scoring 168 goals. Prior to the 2013-14 campaign he had scored in every Premier League season since its inception in 1992.

He ended the most recent campaign as the club's caretaker manager following the sacking of David Moyes, and bid farewell to Old Trafford against Hull City after substituting himself on for the final 20 minutes.

"I am immensely proud, honoured and fortunate to have represented the biggest club in the world 963 times and Wales 64 times," Giggs told the club's official website
