PICTURE: Manchester United star pays tribute to Ryan Giggs

Phil Jones still seems in awe of his Manchester United teammate.

I wasn't born yet and #Giggs on this day in 1991 made his debut for @ManUtd. What a #legend. pic.twitter.com/WQ7SxVbCIZ

Ryan Giggs' longevity is remarkable, and just how so has been illustrated by teammate Phil Jones.

Jones used twitter yesterday to post a photo of the Welshman on his debut in 1991 - a date he was not even born.

Jones, 22, was born almost en entire 12 months later - and the pair anchored United's midfield in their most impressive win of the season, a 5-0 win at Leverkusen.

Whether either of them should be next season is another matter. Jones many feel is best off in central defence and Giggs is tipped to retire - not having made a start for a month for the club.
