PostSubject: Brown: Giggs is better than Pele!   Mon Jul 19, 2010 8:15 pm

Quote :
Wes Brown has described Manchester United team-mate Ryan Giggs as the best player ever, above Diego Maradona and Pele.

At 36, Giggs is still going strong after making his debut for the club in the 1990-91 season.

United's record appearance holder with 838 matches under his belt is getting ready for another run-out on the tour of the United States against Philadelphia Union.

When asked who was his favourite footballer of all time, Brown responded: "I know it is going to sound daft this but I would have to say Giggsy.

"Of course, you have got the likes of Maradona and Pele who were world-class players, but for me it is Giggsy. His overall game and his achievements are just incredible.

"You get one-offs every now and again and he's certainly one of them. To have performed consistently well at the top level for such a long time and stayed with one team is amazing.

"It is difficult to think of anyone else like Ryan; Sir Bobby [Charlton] is probably the only other player to compare with Giggsy."

Meanwhile Brown says he would welcome the introduction of goal-line technology.

Brown believes the authorities have to act following Frank Lampard's disallowed effort for England during the World Cup in South Africa.

Lampard thought he had pulled his side level against Germany in the last 16 but was astonished that the goal was not given when the ball was clearly yards over the line.

On the subject of video technology, Brown, with 23 England caps to his name, said on manutd.com : "I think it has to be brought in for the goal line.

"I was as disappointed as everyone else when I saw Frank's effort disallowed against Germany. The ball was so far over it was incredible.

"It would only take a few seconds to check whether the ball had gone over. It works well in tennis and I think it would be a great addition to our game."

Brown arrived in Philadelphia from Toronto with the rest of the 22-man squad following the victory against Celtic.

Despite searing humidity the players have had to endure double training sessions as they prepare to meet a Union side who are making progress after a difficult start in this their first season in MLS.

They ended Toronto's eight-match unbeaten run with a 2-1 victory on Saturday thanks to Frenchman Sebastien Le Toux's stoppage-time winner from the penalty spot.

That followed the defeat of Neil Lennon's Celtic in midweek and coach Peter Nowak said: "You can see that we are getting better.

"The players are getting smarter. Especially the young kids. This is still a work in progress. We just need to keep making adjustments and concentrate on moving forward."

Brown is talking bollocks to be fair. He wasn't even the best player of his generation.

When did I say he isn't?

I was saying Brown is talking bollocks, not you.

He's a Man United legend and one of the greatest players to play football.
