Wales manager Ryan Giggs is one of the most coveted names in the world of football after featuring for Manchester United in his heydays.
Giggs who holds the most appearance (963) in United history played with some of the big names between 1991 and 2014 but who are the top ten players who featured most with him?

The pair came through the club’s ranks together and won a lot of silverware during their time at United.
- Gary Neville (436 games)
Another youth-team product who manned the right back under manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The temperamental Irish was one of the trusted lieutenants of Fergie before they broke ranks later in his career. One of the players who featured prominently with Giggs more so during the club’s 1998 Champions League triumph.
- Denis Irwin (350)
Featuring as a full back for United, Irwin is currently an ambassador to the club after some enormous outing with the club under Ferguson and complimented Giggs well on the left-wing.
- Rio Ferdinand (328)
Remains the most vocal among the lot die to his punditry work. Was a co-captain to Giggs when they won the UEFA Champions League trophy in 2008.
- Peter Schmeichel (297)
Could have not missed the list as he was the preferred first-choice keeper for United between 1991 to 1999.
- David Beckham (293)

- Wayne Rooney (279)
United’s all-time goal scorer enjoyed some moments with Giggs later in his career.
- Mikael Silvestre (277)
Before the arrival of Patrice Evra, Silvestre was United’s first choice at left-back after replacing Irwin. He featured as a centre back too and provided important goals for United during his stay before moving to Arsenal.
- John O’shea (275)
Utility man, John O’shea couldn’t miss the list due to his versatility that saw him feature in a chunk of games to fill voids left by injured players.
