Arsenal's Silvestre: Man Utd veteran Giggs deserves knighthood

Arsenal defender Mikael Silvestre is backing former Manchester United teammate Ryan Giggs for a knighthood.

He said: "Ryan is an extraordinary player and had he been born English he'd have been given a knighthood by now.

"He would be called Sir Ryan Giggs and they would have put up a statue of him in Piccadilly Circus.

"He is a winger, which is the position where you run the most, yet he has never spared himself."
