RYAN GIGGS has picked his ultimate Manchester United six-a-side team – with Cristiano Ronaldo dubbed the best player he ever shared a pitch with.
The Welshman had a glittering playing career at Old Trafford, winning 13 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues over a successful 24-year period.
Despite that, there was no room for himself in his own team, with Class of 92 pals David Beckham and Gary Neville – as well as Eric Cantona – snubbed.
Giggs named Man Utd legends Peter Schmeichel, Jaap Stam, Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney in his dream team.
The Wales boss said: “Schmeichel would be the goalkeeper, Jaap would be the whole back four, Keaney, then the rest are going to be forward players. Scholesy, Ronaldo and Rooney.”
Despite being the club’s most decorated footballer, Giggs opted for Scholes and Ronaldo as his best-ever Old Trafford stars.

Giggs told an MUTV group chat: “The best player I played with is Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Obviously he was only there for a short space of time and he was brilliant for United and then went on to do even better elsewhere. Or not even better just as well as United.
“Scholesy is the best player I’ve played with at United, you’ve all seen it in training you couldn’t get near him.
“His brain was just quicker than everyone else, his range of passing, nasty.
“You think you’ve got him and he’ll just pop it off and give it the little feint. He was just brilliant in training.”
Giggs, 46, also revealed his toughest opponent – Inter Milan and Argentina full-back Javier Zanetti.
He added: “The hardest player I’ve played against was Zanetti for Inter Milan. He just ran all day. He used to play in midfield so he was comfortable on the ball.
“He could defend, he was tough, he actually broke my nose once. Zanetti had everything as a defender.”
