Sir Alex Ferguson believes Ryan Giggs' astonishing career even eclipses that of legendary Italian Paolo Maldini.

The evergreen Manchester United man will be making his 900th appearance if he plays some part of the Europa League last-32 encounter with Ajax at Old Trafford.

Ferguson said: "Obviously Maldini was a magnificent player but there is a distinction. Maldini was a defender and although in his case, he probably put in a lot of running as a full-back, wide players have more work to do"
