Ryan Giggs was Man of the Match the last time Man United took on Juventus.
Impressive, considering the Welshman neither started, nor finished the second leg of the Champions league knockout game.
Man United were 2-1 up after the first leg, and were resting players for the Worthington Cup final (Carabao Cup to any millennials) a few days later.
Giggs was left out of the starting XI with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Juan Sebastian Veron and Diego Forlan charged with providing the attacking sparks.
But the Uruguayan Prince Charming’s game was up after eight minutes as he was forced off through injury.
Cue Giggs to provide the one of the most uniquely brilliant substitute appearances ever.
The winger entered the game with Juventus on top, the Old Lady had hit the post and were dominating the Red Devils all over the pitch.
But Giggsy made the difference, scoring his first of the evening and putting his side 3-1 up on aggregate.
His second was vintage.
The United No11 picked the ball up on the halfway line and ran around two Juventus players before calmly slotting it past Gianluigi Buffon — a goal which effectively put the tie to bed.
The Man United man’s work was done by the 48th minute.
With the League Cup final still at the front of Fergie’s mind, Giggs was taken off just after the restart, completing one of the most amazing substitute performances in memory.
His replacement, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, scored the third to send United through to the quarter-finals.
Man United ended up losing the Cup final 2-0 to arch rivals Liverpool, which poses the question, why didn’t Fergie pull Giggs off earlier?
