With Manchester United going into a game with perhaps their biggest rivals on the back of a 4-1 mauling in the Manchester derby, David Moyes put his faith in one man.
Ryan Giggs, now aged 39, played the entire 90 minutes of United’s 1-0 victory over Liverpool in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday, and put in a top class performance.
Of course it inspired the usual commentary and analysis from our friends at Sky Sports, about the man who put the old in Old Trafford.
“How old is Ryan Giggs again?”
“Can you believe the energy he has?”
“He’s the model professional.”
“I’m actually in love with him.”
It has also inspired this Meme of the week, put together by one of Giggs’s former classmates – apparently.
Yes, we get it. Giggs is old. He’s doing a very good job for his age. Well done. Now can we shut up about it please?
