While much of the football talk from the weekend will mainly centre around Liverpool winning the Carling Cup and Arsenal destroying local rivals Tottenham Hotspur 5-2, there was also another very special occasion. 38 year old Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs made his 900th appearance for the Old Trafford club and managed to bag the last minute winner on such a special day for him.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been praising the Welshman for achieving such a sensational milestone. He explained, "For a player to play for one club for 900 games is exceptional and it won't be done again. He deserved that goal for his service to the club. He's had an amazing career and he's an amazing man." Ryan Giggs then discussed how special an occasion it was for him to score on his 900th appearance for Manchester United.
He added, "To play 900 games for this club, who I've grown up supporting, is special - it's a great day for me. I am sure there will be more twists and turns in the title race and I expect more drama and late goals." The 2-1 win over Norwich City at the weekend keeps Manchester United within two points of leaders Manchester City and the title race very much alive.
