Let’s take a look at 5 modern-day best players whose shirt numbers should be retired.
5. Ryan Giggs (Manchester United)
Since his debut in 1990, Giggs played 24 seasons for Manchester United and was one of the most honoured footballers in EPL. great movements, crossing, and passing were regarded as his greatest qualities. Giggs also holds the record for the most assists in Premier League history (271).
Ryan Giggs played a total of 963 games for Manchester United and scored 168 goals. The no.11 Jersey will never be forgotten at Old Trafford, and we honestly think it should be retired.
4. Andres Iniesta (Barcelona)
A product of Barcelona’s academy, Iniesta is well known for his inclusive abilities. His ball control, passing, and vision are his greatest power. At 33-year-old has done wonders at Camp Nou.
Iniesta has won 8 La Liga titles, 5 Copa del Rey titles, 4 UEFA Champions League titles, and 3 FIFA Club World Cup titles with the Catalan giants. He started his career with jersey no.34, but has worn the no.8 for the past 11 seasons.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)
A resourceful attacker, Ronaldo has the ability to play on either wing as well as through the centre of the pitch, and, while ostensibly right-footed, is very strong with both feet. He grades among the world’s fastest footballers. Ronaldo averages more than a goal per game for Real Madrid in his 419 appearances.
No.7 in football is always special and Cristiano Ronaldo is no different. He wore the no.7 at Manchester United and Real Madrid, except for the 2009/10 campaign.
