Ryan Giggs won the PFA Merit award on Sunday night, meaning he has a clean sweep of the awards, following on from the PFA Young Player of the Year award in 1993 and the PFA Player of the Year award in 2009.
I’m chuffed to have to have won all three awards, the young player was a long time ago and then the player award was a big surprise. This is the culmination of around 25 years since my debut, so it’s a credit to myself, my team-mates, staff, family and friends. When you win each award you look down the trophy and you see the players who have won it before and you realise what a great accolade it is. This is the same. I’ve been here on the nights when people have won it and it’s legends of the game. I’m fortunate to win it and I’ll enjoy it.
