Before retiring from football, Ryan Giggs had 24-year career on the pitch winning 13 Premier League titles and also two Champions League.

Going through all these years, Ryan Giggs had many teammates he played with at Manchester United and among them is Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how five-time Champions League winner Cristiano Ronaldo finally returned to Juventus training for the first time since March when the league was suspended.

Having spent close to seven weeks in his hometown in Portugal, the 35-year-old was subjected to another 14-days self-isolation in Portugal as part of the rules to curb the further spread of coronavirus pandemic.

The former Real Madrid forward was however spotted arriving at the club's Continassa complex in his black Jeep after a 72-day absence.

He also underwent COVID-19 test before being allowed to use the facilities for an individual workout on the pitch in Turin.

While sharing his excitement to return to the club, Ronaldo posted on his social media pages: "When we become patient and consistent, we find the way to get through the difficulties."

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner encouraged over 200 million followers with the message after posing for a picture with double thumbs up and a beautiful smile.
