Astonishing! No Cristiano Ronaldo in Ryan Giggs’ Manchester United XI.

We’ve seen Manchester United’s veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs joking time and time again with Ronaldo on the field, and praising the Portuguese winger for his remarkable achievements. However, the 34-year-old Welsh man dared to omit Cristiano Ronaldo from his all-time Manchester United XI.

“Peter was one of the best players I played with,” Giggs said he Daily Mail.

“He was a match-winner who would save the game for United because he was such a good goalkeeper.

“Now I play with Edwin. They are both great goalkeepers. It wouldn’t matter who played in goal.”

Then talking about his long-time teammate Paul Scholes, Giggs stated:

“He does things I couldn’t do. The time he has on the ball, his range of passing and ability to score goals make him probably the best I’ve ever seen.”

Manchester United’s former number 7 David Beckham makes it on the right wing, while Cantona and
Rooney – for whom Giggs had some good comments – are upfront.

“They are players who have come through the system; players from different countries and background that sums up Manchester United.”

It seems like Ryan Giggs didn’t only base his choice on skill but also on the “loyalty” factor.
So is it a truth that Cristiano Ronaldo’s behavior during the transfer saga has affected the love, respect, and honor that some big personalities at the club – like Ryan Giggs – had for the World Player of the Year?

Ryan Giggs’ Manchester United XI:

Goalkeeper: Schmeichel or Van der Sar,

Defenders: Garry Neville – Stam – Ferdinand – Irwin

Midfielders: Beckham – Scholes – Keane – Giggs

Strikers: Cantona – Rooney
