Anyone can play like me says Giggs
Around the Academy:

Ryan Giggs reveals his thoughts to the Sport Academy
Many believe Giggs was simply born a genius

Welsh wizard Ryan Giggs is no ordinary footballer.

The Manchester United superstar is one of the fastest players in world football.

Watch Ryan's story in video

His control and balance are unrivalled.

On the field of play he is a class apart.

Many believe Giggs was simply born a genius.

Yet the modest Welshman insists he is no different to anyone else.

And he says he has to work as hard on the training pitch as the next player.

"Ask any player, no matter how good they are or how old they are, they still have to work on things - and I'm no different," Giggs told the Sport Academy.

"In training you work on things and you just try and perfect things because you want to be the best."
