Ryan Giggs Responds To Rumour That He 'Pinned Cristiano Ronaldo Against A Wall' At Man United

Ryan Giggs Responds To Rumour That He 'Pinned Cristiano Ronaldo Against A Wall' At Man United

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has admitted that he once tore into Cristiano Ronaldo for drinking Coke at breakfast.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claimed in 2016 that the Welshman made his feelings clear towards Ronaldo by pinning him up against the wall during the incident.

The United boss told Jan Aage Fjortoft: "Once Cristiano Ronaldo came to breakfast with a can of Coca-Cola in his hands. Ryan Giggs pushed him against the wall!

"He said to Ronaldo, 'Don't ever do that again.'"

When Giggs was asked if he felt the Juventus superstar's conduct was not acceptable, he told UTD Podcast: "Maybe. I don't know if I pinned him.

"I might have told him, 'We don't do this' and then he went and scored a hat-trick! 'I drink what I want, Giggsy!'"

Giggs, 46, enjoyed an incredible 24-year playing career at Old Trafford and won an astonishing 13 Premier League titles with the Red Devils.

The Wales boss recently beat Arsenal legend Thierry Henry to be named the best Premier League player of all time.

Ryan Giggs Once Pinned Cristiano Ronaldo Against A Wall In Anger After Coke Incident

published at6 months ago

Giggs, who holds a club-record 963 appearances for the Red Devils, has opened up about the sacrifices he made to prolong his playing career.

The former United star explained: "I love chocolate and loads of butter on my toast. When I wasn't playing well or felt a bit sluggish, I cut them out completely.

"If I was playing well and having loads of butter, I'd carry on. It wasn't physical, it was mental. It was punishing yourself.

"I had Dairy Milk in the cupboard until I scored."

Giggs would continue to push himself in his career and even play in matches when he was carrying an injury.

The former Wales international once wore tights during the Manchester derby at the Etihad in 2005 in a bid to support his hamstrings.

"I got all the whistles when I came onto the pitch," he said.

"Looking back, I probably should have just stuck with wintergreen and deep heat. It would be normal now. I was a trendsetter."
