Players with most appearances for Manchester United 2019 Ryan Giggs holds the all-time record for most appearances for Manchester United, playing in 963 games for the club between 1991 and 2014. Sir Bobby Charlton and Paul Scholes are ranked second and third in the list respectively.

The Welsh wizard

Ryan Giggs made his debut for Manchester United aged 17-years-old as a substitute against Everton at Old Trafford in March 1991. Giggs scored 168 goals during his 23-years as a player for the club, a tally that puts him among the list of the all-time top goalscorers for Manchester United. He won 34 trophies with Manchester United and is the most decorated player in English soccer history, helping the club to 13 English Premier League titles and two UEFA Champions League trophies – Giggs is fourth in the list of players with most games played in the UEFA Champions League. The Cardiff-born winger played 64 times for Wales and was appointed manager of the Wales national team in January 2018.

The class of ‘92

Ryan Giggs was part of Manchester United’s 1992 FA Youth Cup winning squad alongside David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, and Nicky Butt. This group of players went on to become known as the Class of ’92 and, as senior players, led Manchester United through a dominant era of success under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson, most notably winning the English Premier League, the FA Cup, and the UEFA Champions League in 1998/99. The Class of ‘92 are now majority shareholders in Salford City Football Club, who play in the fourth tier of English soccer in 2019/20.
