Video: Proof that it’s not just Louis van Gaal, Ryan Giggs never really gets excited by anything
He really doesn’t.
There has been a lot of focus on the relationship between Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal and his assistant, Ryan Giggs, this week.
The pair’s contrasting reaction to Ashley Young’s late winner against Newcastle supposedly highlighted a tension between the pair, although some tried to point out that Giggs’ lack of elation could have been due to his disappointment at another below-par performance.
What hasn’t been taken into consideration, however, is that Ryan Giggs rarely gets excited by anything.
Honestly, he really doesn’t.
Some will obviously point to his reaction after scoring one of the greatest goals of all-time in the 1999 FA Cup semi-final replay victory over Arsenal and say otherwise, but that was a rare exception to the rule that most of the time, Giggs is extremely nonplussed.
Don’t believe us? Just watch.
(Hat-tip to @BeautifullyRed for pointing some of these out on Twitter this morning)
It was apparent from his early days at Old Trafford
Great goal v QPR, followed by withering wag of the finger
Good finish after great Cantona assist v Arsenal, almost apologetic celebration
Seriously Ryan, it’s OK to celebrate when you score, even if it’s a crap goal
It’s hard to get excited about a goal against Middlesbrough in fairness
They were chasing a lead at the time so this is more understandable, but still…
Don’t worry Louis, it’s not you, it’s Ryan
Louis van Gaal lo grita. Giggs no celebra http://t.co/J0SZIjxpRY
