Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: 'Ryan Giggs is a special player'

Arsene Wenger says that Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs is a "special" player as the Welshman celebrates his 40th birthday.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs on the Welshman's 40th birthday.

Giggs, who was appointed as a player-coach at Old Trafford at the start of the season, has claimed that he has no intention of hanging up his boots just yet.

Speaking at a press conference, Wenger gave credit to the Welshman and likened him to former Arsenal star Dennis Bergkamp.

"He reminds me a bit of Bergkamp," Wenger told reporters. "To deliver these performances at 40 is something special."

Giggs started for United in Wednesday's 5-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League.
