Ryan Giggs tribute to Charlton ahead of stand unveiling

Manchester United coach Ryan Giggs has paid tribute to Sir Bobby Charlton.

Ahead of Sunday’s ceremony to mark the unveiling of the new Sir Bobby Charlton Stand at Old Trafford, Giggs was asked to sum up the impact the World Cup and European Cup winner has had on the club.

“He’s always been really approachable and encouraging, from a young age right until I was 40 playing in the first team. He had a massive impact on me throughout my career,” Giggs told MUTV.

“He always took an interest in how the young players did. He’d go and watch the youth team and the Reserves, he’d come on tour when we would go abroad and that’s when you saw first hand the love people around the world had for him.”

“He was always trying to help the young players whether it be by an encouraging word here and there or talking to you about something he saw in a game.”
