Man Utd favourite Giggs laughs off knighthood talk

Manchester United favourite Ryan Giggs admits he's delighted with his nomination for PFA Player of the Year.

Manchester United favourite Ryan Giggs admits he's delighted with his nomination for PFA Player of the Year.

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!"
