Former Birmingham City and Sheffield United midfielder Curtis Woodhouse estimates that Ryan Giggs was an "incredibly overrated" player for Man Utd.
The former Wales international has won 13 Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups and two Champions Leagues at Old Trafford.
However, Woodhouse, who played three times in the Premier League for Birmingham, considers Giggs' career statistics for Man Utd to be similar to that of a left back, not a left winger.

"Ryan Giggs, another incredibly overrated Manchester United player," Woodhouse published in Twitter.
“Exceptional longevity, but in a team that he dominated for years and was a free scoring machine, his goal and assist statistics are terrible. Another Manchester United myth, good player, never again.
Ryan Giggs, another incredibly overrated player from Manchester United. Exceptional longevity, but in a team that he dominated for years and was a free scoring machine, his statistics of goals and assists are terrible. Another Manchester United myth, good player, never anything more

“Giggs has had 162 assists in PL for more than 22 years to accomplish its 109 goals, again over 22 years. His team dominated them for 22 years, breaking scoring records. Ryan Giggs was the left winger, looking at his stats, you can mistake him for the left wing.
"Giggs didn't even have a good left foot !! He was a remarkable athlete, but his left foot was not so good. His delivery was good, it wasn't great, he couldn't spray, he was a great athlete. Let's keep it real .
“Giggs was a good player. Steady on the left side, lots of energy, great pace. Good player, but not a great player, never had a world-class season in 22 attempts, but still a good player. Never poor, but never brilliant, a good constant player. "
Comparing him to Real Madrid's Gareth Bale and Liverpool's right back, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Woodhouse added: “Yes, Bale is better than Giggs, he had a bigger impact on club football and international football. Giggs will have longevity over Bale, that's it. Ryan Giggs doesn't have a single better attribute than Gareth Bale, not one.
“TAA (Trent Alexander-Arnold) is more of an attack threat than Ryan Giggs in 22 years. TAA is on the right side and Ryan Giggs on the left wing. "
