The 10 Greatest Premier League Players Of All Time Have Been Named And Ranked
Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs has fended off fierce competition from other footballing legends to be named the best Premier League player of all time.
The 46-year-old Welshman enjoyed a prolific footballing career and spent an incredible 24 years at Old Trafford.
And the former United winger captured an astonishing 13 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, four FA Cups and three League Cups with the Red Devils.
The Daily Mirror compiled the rankings for the 10 best Premier League players of all time and placed Giggs top of the pile.
According to the newspaper, Giggs' Premier League trophy haul is a 'feat [that] is worthy of a place at football's top table of all-time greats.'
The Mirror added that the Wales boss' reputation as a legend is a 'justifiable accolade for a player synonymous with Manchester United's dominant success.'
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, who is widely considered as one of the best strikers of all time, finished behind Giggs in the rankings.
The Mirror said that the 42-year-old Frenchman cemented his legacy as the Gunners' best player of all time after his eight-year stint at the club.
And the newspaper also suggested that Henry could arguably be considered as the 'best foreign import ever to strut the Premier League.'
Closing off the top three is none other than ex-United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, with The Mirror saying his 'development into [...] one of the greatest modern-day players alongside Lionel Messi was forged in the Premier League.'
The 35-year-old Juventus superstar's achievements and impact in England have 'secured him legendary status for eternity at Old Trafford,' according to the publication.
