SLTV: Giggs Reveals Why We Are Currently In The Best Footballing Era
Manchester United club legend, Ryan Giggs has explained why he thinks we are currently living in the best footballing era.
Giggs retired from the beautiful game in 2014, after spending his entire professional football career with English Premier League giants, Manchester United, winning 34 pieces of silverware, which includes two UEFA Champions League trophies.
The 45-year-old is currently in Mzansi with Heineken touring the UEFA Champions League trophy ahead of tonight’s round of 16 clashes.
Speaking to the media, Giggs explained why he thinks that football is currently in the best era it has ever been, adding that we currently are watching two of the greatest footballers of all time, in their prime.
“I think right now is the best, I think football always evolves and you can always say, back in my day and you can always look back and say there were great players then but now, with the media interest, the Stadiums, the fans, the pitches, the facilities, now it is the best,” Giggs said.
“And also, now we are living in an era where you see two of the best players that have perhaps ever lived, we are probably taking them for granted now, Ronaldo and Messi, when has that happen before? I don’t know, it probably has but now you are seeing two of the greatest players that have ever lived, at their peak and both at the top best teams and winning Champions Leagues, we are in an Era where it is fantastic,” he added.
