Former Manchester United winger David Beckham has described Ryan Giggs as a “special” player ahead of their return to the Old Trafford pitch for the ‘Match for Children’, in aid of UNICEF.
Beckham and Giggs played together during one of Man United’s most successful ever periods.
The pair were both part of the famous ‘Class of ’92’ which helped United win a Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League treble in the 1998/99 season.
Beckham lavished praise on Giggs and labelled him a “United great”.
“When I watched Giggsy as a young player, he was truly something special,” Beckham said.
“No matter if he was playing for the B team, A team, reserves or first team he was simply untouchable. A United great.”
Both players are rightly regarded as United legends and it will be fantastic to see them in a red shirt once again in the charity game this weekend. The likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, Paul Scholes and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will also feature against a side captained by Zinedine Zidane and managed by Carlo Ancelotti.
