Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs admits he grew up idolising AC Milan.

Giggs was awarded the Golden Foot for 2011 last night in Monaco.

He told TMW: "I love Italian football and follow it carefully, because every time we face an Italian club it is always hard.

"What I have to confess is that I was always a big fan of AC Milan, especially the team of Arrigo Sacchi and it's amazing how their legend has grown."
