The career of Ryan Giggs

Ryan Giggs retired from professional football on Monday after 24 seasons with Manchester United. The most decorated player in English history will join new United coach Louis van Gaal's staff as an assistant starting next season. Here's a look back at the legendary career of the man nicknamed "The Welsh Wizard."

• Giggs retires as Manchester United's all-time leader in appearances with 963. He made 802 of those appearances as a starter and he is the only player in English history to make 900 appearances with a single club. Giggs is also tied with Joe Spence as the seventh-leading scorer in club history with 168 goals.

• He is also the all-time leader in European Cup/Champions League appearances with 151. He surpassed former record-holder Raúl on Oct. 2, 2013, when he appeared as a substitute against Shakhtar Donetsk in the group stage. Giggs scored 29 goals in his European Cup/Champions League career, third most in United history.

• His 632 Premier League appearances are the most all-time, 55 more than Chelsea's Frank Lampard. Giggs was the last active player to have appeared in every season of the Premier League (first season in 1992-93), and the 2013-14 season was the first time in his career that he failed to register a Premier League goal. His 109 Premier League goals are second all-time in United history.

• Giggs has also won 34 trophies as a player and is the most decorated player in English history. Giggs' titles include 13 Premier League titles, and he alone has won more league titles than all but three English clubs: Manchester United (20), Liverpool (18) and Arsenal (13). Giggs also won two Champions League titles, converting the winning penalty in United's shootout with Chelsea in the 2008 final.

• Giggs was never sent off in his Manchester United career and he received only one red card in his 64 caps for Wales after receiving two yellow cards in a World Cup qualifier against Norway on Sept. 5, 2001. That's a grand total of one red card in 1,027 professional matches.A look back at the career of Ryan Giggs
