Curtis Woodhouse says Ryan Giggs was 'unbelievably overrated'


Curtis Woodhouse is on a one-man mission to rattle the entire Manchester United fanbase this weekend, it seems.

We’ve already told you how he’s argued that Steven Gerrard better than Paul Scholes in a series of tweets that even had Scholes’ son replying in anger.

And it didn’t take long for him to move on to another United legend, Ryan Giggs.

Before he’d even finished putting down Scholes’ achievements, Woodhouse claimed that Giggs was also “unbelievably overrated.”

That’s the same Giggs who played 963 times for United over 24 years, winning 13 Premier League titles…


“Ryan Giggs another unbelievably overrated Manchester United player. Outstanding longevity but in a team that dominated for years and were a free scoring machine his statistics for goals and assists is awful. Another Manchester United myth, good player, never anything more,” Woodhouse tweeted.

It was only the start.

The former Sheffield United and Birmingham midfielder then wrote: “Ryan Giggs once scored 13 league goals in a season. It was the 1993-94 season. That was his most productive season at the club. In a team that dominated the league for 2 decades and prided themselves on all out attack he peaked at 13.”


And then added: “Giggs has 162 assists in the PL over 22 years to go with his 109 goals, again over 22 years. His team dominated them 22 years of football breaking scoring records as they went. Ryan Giggs was a left winger, looking at his stats you may confuse him with a left back.”


Woodhouse then claimed that former Arsenal winger Robert Pires was “streets ahead” of Giggs in terms of ability before suggesting that Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is more of an attacking threat than Giggs was.


Of course, Woodhouse may only be tweeting these sort of opinions to get a few bites from United fans – and it’s definitely working.

Either way, Woodhouse certainly livened up Twitter on a Saturday with his name trending in the United Kingdom. Although not everyone had something nice to say about his views…
