Ryan Giggs does keepy ups with a potato

Ryan Giggs may be finding hard to adjust to life off of the football pitch after appearing over 950 times for Manchester United in a glittering career.

The wing wizard made more appearances for the Red Devils than any other player in the club's illustrious history, but now takes a non-playing role alongside Louis van Gaal on the management bench.

But it appears Giggs is starting to pine to play once more grabbing any chance to kick a ball about; or in this case, a root vegetable.

Silky Spud skills

Not concerned with where the potato may finally lay to rest–boiled, mashed or roasted on some oblivious customer's plate–Giggs tried his best to play keepy ups in the kitchen of his own restaurant.

Not renowned for their circularity, a potato is not the easiest thing to have a kick about with. But as a former professional footballer, Giggs manages around half a dozen before the potato in question goes flying halfway across the kitchen.

Anniversary celebrations

The video was allegedly filmed at George's Dining Room and Bar, the restaurant situated on the outskirts of Manchester, which Giggs co-owns. Close to celebrating its one year anniversary, Giggs is planning to celebrate with a series of festive events.

He is quoted in the Manchester Evening News as saying: "The business is doing well, a year on and it has been pretty successful .

"We are looking forward to Christmas and we have some good bookings. Last year was a bit of a rush but we are fully prepared."
