Man Utd defender Brown rates Giggs as greatest EVER

Wes Brown says Manchester United teammate Ryan Giggs is the game's greatest.

At 36 Giggs is still going strong after making his debut for the club in the 1990-91 season. And United's record appearance holder, with 838 matches, is getting ready for another run-out on the tour of the United States on Wednesday against Philadelphia Union.

When asked who was his favourite footballer of all time, Brown responded: "I know it is going to sound daft this but I would have to say Giggsy. Of course, you have got the likes of Maradona and Pelé who were world-class players, but for me it is Giggsy. His overall game and his achievements are just incredible.

"You get one-offs every now and again and he's certainly one of them. To have performed consistently well at the top level for such a long time and stayed with one team is amazing. It is difficult to think of anyone else like Ryan; Sir Bobby [Charlton] is probably the only other player to compare with Giggsy."
