An unbelievably successful and truly fantastic footballer who plays for Manchester United. He's an attacking left-footed left winger with great ability in terms of speed, dribbling the ball and leaving even the very best defenders with 'twisted blood'.
He has played for United since he joined the youth teams in 1988, aged 14, and is still playing for United in 2008, aged 34, TWENTY YEARS LATER - which shows his amazing, completely unmatched loyalty to the club.
He has played 700+ games for United, and is currently second in the all time appearances record behind Bobby Charlton (although by the time you're reading this, he may well have overtaked Charlton's record)
He has won the league NINE TIMES as of the end of the 2006/07 season - this is a record in English football history (no one has ever won as many).
As well as winning 9 Premier Leagues, he has also won 4 FA Cups, 2 League Cups and 1 Champions League - making him THE most decorated player in the premiership (and, like, joint most decorated player EVER).
A truly legendary player, he scored THAT goal against Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final replay at Villa Park in 1999 - which was later voted: 1. Goal of the century, 2. Best goal in the FA Cup competition, 3. Best moment in the FA Cup competition (which has been going on for over 100 years) and 4. Best Manchester United goal. He picked up the ball YARDS behind the half-way line and then dribbled way over half the entire length of the pitch and through the ENTIRE Arsenal defence (which was world-class at the time), going past some players twice, to score the magnificent goal.
He was born in Wales but moved to Manchester aged 7, and so, unfortunately for us English, wasn't applicable to play for the English side. If he'd been English he would have WITHOUT A DOUBT earned over 100 caps by now, and who knows, probably helpled England progress a bit further in the competitions.
The World Cup is the only trophy he hasn't won. He was won everything else, usually more that once.
Legend. Pure LEGEND.
