According to former Premier League midfielder Curtis Woodhouse, Ryan Giggs has become an “incredibly overrated Manchester United star”.
“Exceptional longevity, but his numbers for goals and assists are bad in a squad that flourished for years and became a free scoring machine. Another Manchester United myth, great player, nothing more,” Woodhouse wrote on Twitter.
The ex-midfielder aimed at Giggs’ record in a series of tweets, claiming his individual output wasn’t enough considering his position and the team he was part of.
“Another massively overrated Manchester United star in Ryan Giggs,” he tweeted. “Giggs performed well. Big strength, fantastic speed, steady down the left-hand side. Strong player, not only a fantastic player, in 22 attempts has never had a world-class season but always a great match. A good steady player, never poor but never amazing.”
He then detailed exactly what he found lacking in the player:
“His squad conquered as they went 22 years of smashing football scoring records. Ryan Giggs was a left winger so you may be comparing him for a left back looking at his stats.
“Giggs didn’t even have a good left foot!! He was an excellent athlete, but his left foot wasn’t that good. His delivery was right, he wasn’t great, he couldn’t splash it, and he was a great athlete.”
