Ferguson campaigning for ManU legend Giggs' knighthood

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that he would love to see midfielder Ryan Giggs being made a knight just like himself.


London, Sep 25: Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that he would love to see midfielder Ryan Giggs being made a knight just like himself.

"There is one accolade which has yet to materialize for Ryan, although I trust it is only a matter of time before it does. How I would love to adorn my teamsheet with the words 'Sir Ryan Giggs'," Ferguson wrote in the foreword to Giggs' new book, 'My Life My Story'.

"And why not? After all, it might be said that Clive Woodward became a knight of the realm essentially for winning three games at the 2003 World Cup."

"Now, I'm certain that most of England, and everyone on the rugby scene, would say his honour was richly merited - and I wouldn't argue with that. But after making more than 800 appearances for United - many of them in extremely high-pressure situations - doesn't Ryan deserve it too?" he added.

Ferguson also reiterated how much he wants Giggs, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes to build a coaching dynasty at the club when their playing days are finally over.

Giggs has played for United for his entire professional career, and holds a host of football records, including that of being the most decorated player in English football history.

He is the only footballer to collect 11 top division English league title medals, and also the only player to have played and scored in every single season of the Premier League since its inception.
