Rooney: Giggs deserves statue

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney believes that the club should erect a statue to commemorate the career of team-mate Ryan Giggs.

United recently named a stand after Sir Alex Ferguson thank him for his 25 years of service and currently have two statues outside the Theatre of Dreams, with one of Sir Matt Busby, and the other paying tribute to Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best and Denis Law.

But Rooney thinks that Welshman Giggs is equally deserving of a tribute to his impact for the club.

"If there's one player over the last 20 to 25 years who deserves a statue outside Old Trafford, it's Ryan Giggs,'' Rooney told the Sun. "Because what Giggsy has done here is absolutely incredible. "He made his debut as a 17 year old and so to still be playing at the top level 21 years later is a magnificent achievement.

"He has been fantastic for this football club and to still be performing so well at his age is phenomenal. Giggsy's a wonderful example around the club too, the way he trains, the way he prepares and to see him working so hard on his game every day explains why he is so special."
