Man Utd favourite Giggs laughs off knighthood talk
He told United Review: "It sits well! That would be nice, but there are a lot of players who have done well this season. At Liverpool, for example, there are people like [Steven] Gerrard and [Xabi] Alonso who have been terrific. And Frank Lampard’s had another good season. We’ve also got a few players here at United who would be deserving winners of that award."
And with Sir Alex Ferguson calling for a knighthood for Giggs, he laughed: "I think the manager must have a bet on somewhere and he’s trying to influence the outcome! Maybe he’s got money on me getting one before I’m 40 or something!"
