Ryan Giggs and Kanchelskis were the two favorite wonderful wingers of Manchester United’s Manager. Kanchelskis played a crucial role in Sir Alex Ferguson’s first double side in 1994. Ryan Giggs, who was the youngest talent revealed by Sir Alex himself, still remains the evergreen left winger (we cannot forget his all time best FA Cup goal). He has contributed so much and is still contributing his full best for Man Utd.
But no player remains forever and retirement is looming near Giggs. To find an answer to this, Sir Alex has acquired Nani. He is referred as the new Giggs, but most of us see him as the 2nd Ronaldo in Man Utd :)
This reminds me when Cristiano Ronaldo came to fill the gap left by the sad departure of David Beckham, the spice boy as they name him. Ronaldo has been a perfect match for the number 7 shirt on his arrival, a shirt number that has belonged to some of the greatest Manchester United legends like George Best, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona and David Beckham. Mr Fergie is rarely wrong in his choice for replacing players in his magical squad and we all hope that Nani will be the perfect match for the retirement of Ryan in some 2 years’ time.
I really think Nani and Cristiano Ronaldo are the two wingers of the “calibre” of Ryan Giggs and Andrei Kanchelskis.
