Life of Ryan: Caretaker Manager

Synopsis: A film that follows Ryan Giggs through the 2013/14 Premiership season, as the greatest ever Manchester Utd player became the clubs manager and allowed unprecedented access behind the scenes at Old Trafford.

What's the question I get asked most?

"Are we going to win the league this year?"

I always get asked that.

What's the answer?

(SCOFFS) Not this year, no.

(CHUCKLING) Pretty easy this year.

Sometimes it's, "Mmm..." I hope so.

"What's Rooney like?"

Used to be, "What's Cantona like?

What's Ronaldo like?

"What's Beckham like?"

They're all right. (LAUGHING)

No, I'll tell you what. The most the last

five years, "Are you going again this year?

"Are you going again next year?

"When you finishing?"

Manchester United symbolises,

for me, the bedrock of my life.

Been there since I was 13. I learnt so much.

Winning, never-giving-up attitude,

the history, meeting new friends, the fans,

learning things every day

and just a great place to be fortunate

to go every day for over 20 years.

He was

one of these players that,

once he stepped on the field,

you know that something special

was going to happen,

and that's one of the reasons

why he's had the career that he's had.

It's one of the reasons

why he's been able to play

up until the age of 40

at the highest level in football.

Sometimes you get players

who make you look better than you are,

and I think Giggs would be the best one

I've ever played with.

If he played on snow,

he wouldn't have left footprints.

You won't see a player with that athleticism,

with that intelligence

and to have that hunger

season after season, to turn up

to push your body through

chasing trophy after trophy.

Thirteen Premier League trophies,

two Champions Leagues as well.

Ryan Giggs will be remembered

as the greatest player

to have graced the Premier League.

You don't sometimes

recognise greatness whilst it's happening.

You usually have to wait 20 years

or when you're dead to get a statue,

but he shouldn't have to

for what he's achieved.


There's no player in the game today

that can get up and down that touchline

as an outside left,

attacking but willing to go back to defend,

the attitude to winning all the time.

There's no player in the Premier League

who gets anywhere near that.

This was off Gary, Gary Nev, Gary Neville,

a nice bottle of red wine.

Yeah, Italian, but I think

Roy Hodgson and Graham Souness

have got him

into a tracksuit as well.

No, pyjamas.

Oh, Pyjamas, sorry.

Yeah, that shows my age

that I'm getting excited when I get pyjamas.


This was off the club, Paul Smith bag,

so that was nice.

I mean, I started when I was 17,

and I'm looking at people like Mark Hughes,

who was probably, at the time, 28, 29,

as old, Brucey Robson,

32, 33, and I'm thinking, God, they're ancient.

So God knows what the likes

of Adnan and Phil Jones

and Danny Welbeck, people like that,

are thinking of how old I am.

It's killing me. Like making debut

before people are even born and... Yeah.

I'll be glad when it's over.


When you were younger, 17, 18,

you'd just go out and play

and it's no problem, you feel fit.

But then after 30,

especially toward the end of your 30s,

you can play in a game

and you just feel absolutely rubbish.

Maybe your preparation hasn't been right,

or maybe it's your first game,

or even your second game,

and you just don't feel match fit.

Then you start thinking,

are you ready to do it all again?
