Scholes and Giggs graduated from the famous 'Class of 92' with the pair enjoying a trophy-laden career at Old Trafford.

Including Champions League triumphs. And Scholes highlights Giggs' presence on European nights.

"You'd just give him the ball, especially on big European nights here, he used to beat five or six men, used to get the crowd going."

Scholes adds: "The longevity of his career, as well, was special, not just his quality but to take it to twenty odd years playing in center midfield. At that level, yeah. He was brilliant. He was unbelievable, a freak!"

Giggs eventually called time on his illustrious career in 2014 where he racked up an incredible 963 appearances, a club record.
