Ryan Giggs: A Career in Animated GIFs

Yesterday, Giggsy was photographed in Noordwijk on his way to meet Louis Van Gaal. He’s looking more dapper by the day right now, in stark contrast to a certain toffee-apple bothering number 10.

Yes, yes, I know the Rooney picture is actually from back in 2003, but it’s still pretty funny.

Anyway, as Giggs appears to be on the precipice of life as Assistant to Louis Van Gaal (absolutely the right decision), let’s take another moment to pay tribute to this unparalleled legend of the game in the form of 3 animated GIFs.

Giggs turned 40 late last year, and what better way to mark that milestone than an animated GIF made from football stickers throughout his career…
