Back in March 1991, a coltish dark-haired winger stepped out onto the Old Trafford pitch for a First Division game against Everton. Little did the crowd of 45,656 realise that they were seeing the beginnings of a truly unique career that would extend for 24 seasons and see him break almost every record in the book. Now, in this wonderful tribute to a United legend, we get to hear from those who played with and against him, those who coached him, and those who trained him, and find out what it was that set Ryan Giggs apart from the rest. Fully illustrated throughout, we hear from Eric Harrison how Giggs caught the eye of United's scouts as a youngster, and the work done that culminated in him becoming the leading light of the famous Class of 92. Senior players from that era, such as Bryan Robson and Steve Bruce, recall the impact he made when he was promoted to the first team, just as the club began its incredible reign of success under Alex Ferguson. After picking up the League Cup in 1992, Giggs went on to win a record-breaking 13 league titles, two Champions League medals, and many other honours in a career that would stretch to 963 appearances for United. His resilience and longevity amazed all who looked on, as he continued to play at the top level past his 40th birthday. And when David Moyes left the club, he was the natural replacement as interim manager, rallying the club to reclaim its roots. Now retired as a player, Giggs is about to begin a new role as assistant to Louis van Gaal.

Ryan Giggs first played for Manchester United in the season before the Premiership began; back when Bryan Robson was still captain. He took possession of United's left wing and never loosened his grip. Over a fourteen year career so far, he's seen them all come and go: Cantona, Schmeichel, Beckham and the rest. Sir Alex Ferguson said of Giggs 'I knew we had an outstanding talent when we gave him his debut.' That was back in 1991, but it remains as true in 2005 as it ever was. Giggs has been a pivotal figure in United's dominance of the Premiership. There have been rivals but no other team can match the their sustained record of success over recent years. And Giggs is the only player to have played in all eight of those title winning campaigns. Off the pitch, Ryan Giggs has always closely guarded his private life. But here he opens up for the first time, sharing details of the sometimes turbulent childhood that shaped him and the relationships that have mattered to him to reveal the man behind the famous number 11 red shirt. One thing seems clear: the Old Trafford crowd will be singing 'Giggs will tear you apart again!' for a few years yet ...
