Ryan Giggs smashed most records there were to break at Manchester United.
The mercurial Welshman made his debut with the Red Devils in 1991 before leaving 25-years later after a spell in the coaching staff. He amassed an astonishing 963 appearances at Old Trafford and scored on 168 occasions in the famous red jersey.
As for the trophies, the list is practically endless: 13 Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups, two Champions League titles and that's just the start.
A supreme talent in his youth and an effortless playmaker later in his career, Giggs will be fondly remembered for his pinpoint passing, poetic dribbling and ability to pop up with a crucial goal.
Perhaps one of Giggs' most unique attributes, though, concerned his invention.
Alongside some of the greatest talents of his generation, the 43-year-old had an uncanny knack for adding his own signature on certain phases of play and set pieces.
Perhaps the most famous example came in 2001 when Giggs completely baffled Aston Villa by feigning to take a free-kick at the same time as David Beckham.
Fast forward to 2009 and the Welshman was also involved in a cunning corner routine with Wayne Rooney covertly touching the ball, allowing Giggs to dribble from the corner arc.
Those two incidents proved one-offs but there was one cheeky routine the United legend held as something of a party trick during his time at Old Trafford.
The most famous use came in 2011, during the Manchester derby victory that was capped by Rooney's legendary bicycle kick.
When United won a throw-in on the left flank, Giggs prepared to take it but proceeded to hand responsibilities to Patrice Evra after a quick chat. Evra then proceeded to re-start the game almost instantly by simply throwing the ball against Giggs' back.
Check it out below:
Given how brilliantly simple the move is, it's perhaps surprising that such a routine isn't seen more often in the Premier League.
The only other memorable instance involved Giggs once again.
This time, back in the 2003-04 season, the 43-year-old allowed Gary Neville to use his back for a quick deflection and launch an attack against Fulham. Take a look:
Two more reasons to love Giggs, then.
Perhaps the Welshman will now be able to incorporate some of his tricks and ideas into his coaching endeavour.
The United legend is currently proving very picky over job options and his four-game spell as interim boss with the Red Devils proves his only major role so far.
