The day Cristiano shut up Giggs: “I drink what I want”

You do not get to retire as a player-coach of Manchester United if you do not take much care and also, very early. This was the case of Ryan Giggs, now Wales coach, who managed to extend his career to 40 years and all at the Old Trafford club becoming a legend in his own right.

Thus, when Cristiano Ronaldo arrived at the Manchester club, Ryan Giggs was already a veteran and they had an argument because the Welshman found himself at 7 having breakfast with Coca-Cola and rebuked him. According to former soccer player Jan Aage Fjortoft, now a commentator, Solskjaer told him that Giggs even pushed Cristiano against the wall to make it clear that this was not going to happen again.

Giggs explained his version on the UTD Podcast when asked if he considered Cristiano to have taken “unacceptable conduct”. “It could be. I don't know if I reproached him. He might have said something like” We don't do these things here “ and he marked a hat trick and said to me: “I drink what I want, Giggsy!” He recalled on this show.

The Portuguese has already publicly acknowledged that he did not have the best relationship of all with the Welshman when both shared costumes between 2003 and 2009 after Cristiano arrived from Sporting until he left for Real Madrid. During the time that they coincided, they experienced a stage of domination of English football by the Red Devils with three Premier League, two League Cups and one FA. They also won a Champions League in 2008 against Chelsea.
