Ryan Joseph Giggs OBE is a Welsh football coach, former player and co-owner of Salford City.

Regarded as one of the greatest players of his generation, Giggs spent his entire professional career at Manchester United, where he also served as the club's interim player-manager and assistant manager.

He is one of the most decorated footballers of all time, and is one of only 44 players to have made over 1,000 career appearances.

The son of rugby union and Wales international rugby league footballer Danny Wilson, Giggs was born in Cardiff but moved to Manchester at the age of six when his father joined Swinton RLFC.

Predominantly a left midfielder, he began his career with Manchester City, but joined Manchester United on his 14th birthday in 1987.

He made his professional debut for the club in 1991 and spent the next 23 years in the first team.

He retired from playing with the end of the 2013–14 season, holding the club record for competitive appearances – 963.

Towards the end of the 2013–14 season, he became the club's interim player-manager following the sacking of David Moyes.

He was assistant manager under Moyes' permanent replacement, Louis van Gaal.

Giggs left United in July 2016, following the appointment of José Mourinho.

During his time at United he won 13 Premier League winner's medals – more than any other player in history, four FA Cup winner's medals, three League Cup winner's medals, two UEFA Champions League winner's medals, a FIFA Club World Cup winners medal, an Intercontinental Cup winner's medal, a UEFA Super Cup winner's medal and nine FA Community Shield winner's medals.

Manchester United and Liverpool are the only clubs in English football history to have won more league championships than Giggs.

At international level, Giggs played for the Wales national team 64 times between 1991 and 2007, and captained the Great Britain team that competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

He became the new manager of the Wales national team in January 2018.

Giggs led Wales to qualification for UEFA Euro 2020.

He did not manage the team at the tournament however, which was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as he was arrested on suspicion of assault. His assistant manager Rob Page took charge in his absence. Giggs resigned in June 2022, and Page was named as his successor.

Giggs was the first player in history to win two consecutive PFA Young Player of the Year awards (1992 and 1993), though he did not win the PFA Player of the Year award until 2009.

He was the only player to play in each of the first 22 seasons of the Premier League, as well as the only player to score in each of the first 21 seasons.

He was elected into the PFA Team of the Century in 2007, the Premier League Team of the Decade in 2003, and the FA Cup Team of the Century.

He holds the record for the most assists in Premier League history, with 162, and the most assists in UEFA Champions League history with 41.

He was named as BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2009, and was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2007 Birthday Honours for his services to football.

This has been signed by Giggs, the photo measures 12" x 8" and comes with a COA.
