Few sports greats can level up to what Ryan Giggs has achieved in his career. Very much like the last sports great we highlighted in our last article about Jordan and leaving a legacy…
Both Giggs and Jordan were leaders of their team over three decades in their respective sports.
Giggs won 13 premierships with Manchester United and holds the club record for most appearances with over 1000 games for the club. Giggs is one of the most decorated footballers of all time, winning the FA Cup 4 times, League Cup 3 times, Champions League 2 times, FIFA Club World Cup winner, International Cup winner, Super Cup winner and 9 Community Shield winners medals. Manchester United and Liverpool are the only CLUBS in English football history to have won more league championships than Giggs. Not only has Giggs scored countless breathtaking goals in his career including the goal of century in ’99 against Arsenal but also holds the record for the most assists in Premier League history.
His flamboyant dripping ability at blistering speed is what made Giggsy an icon of the game. For any football fan who was watching during those years, when you think of the left midfield, you thought of Giggs; tearing defences apart. If he wasn’t taking on an entire defence by himself, he was threading the ball through a needle of top class defenders onto the boot of one of his teammates who would finish the goal off, because Giggs got the ball to the point where it was impossible NOT to score.
Giggs had a huge impact on my life and was the reason why I went further with my football. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have practiced as much as I did which then wouldn’t have gotten me to where I got to with the sport. This had the most profound flow on effect for A2ZedHealth and the reason you’re reading this article. See, what this sport has given me is a strong mindset, discipline, determination, how to create friendships, attract women, earn money, create businesses and beyond. The understanding of legacy, leaving a mark and becoming a legend just like my idol Giggs, became my single focus. Setting something up for humanity that not only gets remembered, but makes a difference to people’s lives.
If the left midfield and that famous #11 was an icon of football, think of A2ZedHealth as the icon of health. If there’s anything on your mind, in the broad spectrum of health – think A2ZedHealth.
We’re champions of the health game!
