Since its inception in 1992, the Premier League has produced some of the greatest goals, games, saves, memories, and moments in football history. Some of these records have fallen, while others, like that of Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs, continue to stand.
Here is a list of Ryan Giggs’ Premier League records that may be impossible to break.
- Most Premier League assists
- Most seasons scored in a Premier League
Ryan Giggs, a Manchester United icon, owns the record for the most consecutive goals scored in a season with 21 from 1992/93 to 2012/13. Giggs is the only Premier League player to have appeared in all 22 seasons.
- Most Premier League Winner’s Medals.
He has won the Premier League 13 times, the most in league history. Until his retirement, he was a member of every Manchester United championship squad. His fellow United veteran Paul Scholes, who has won it 11 times, is the second-highest tally on the list. The list is dominated by United players, with 19 of the 20 players who have won the Premier League five times or more representing Manchester United.
- Most ever appearances with nearly 200 more matches for the club than Sir Bobby Charlton in second place.
He has played over 650 league games for the club and made his 150th European appearance in the last away match against Real Madrid. It’s unlikely that any other player will ever come close to these numbers, but it’s not out of the question.
- Most subbed off player
The fact that Giggs has made the most appearances in the Premier League – 632 – has something to do with the fact that he is the most frequently substituted player. Gareth Barry now holds the record with 653 appearances. Although many people are aware of the fact that Giggs has been substituted 134 times in the Premier League, this is a record that few people are aware of.
