Giggs Captains Team GB

Giggs Captains Team GB

With the 2012 London Olympics fast approaching and with Stuart Pearce having named his eighteen man squad, Pearce today named Ryan Giggs as Team GB`s captain.

Giggs, one of three overage players, was seen as the ideal candidate with Pearce remarking,

'He's got the respect of all the members of the group,'

"I looked at the squad and I thought there are some good candidates there.'

'Aaron Ramsey captains Wales, Micah Richards has captained Manchester City at times, Craig Bellamy for the experience he's had and one or two others within the camp as well."

"But I think Ryan is the standout captain amongst the group."

'It was the easiest decision of my managerial career. He has been one of the best professionals of the last 20 years.'


And we reckon he`ll do a fine job.

So John Terry has the captaincy removed for sh**ging a team-mate's ex, but Giggsy-Wiggsy gets off scott free for poking his brother's missus? Wow, just wow.

Wouldn't be surprised if this is Pearce's way of sticking two fingers to the fa over the England job

In fairness Terry did retain his captaincy just to lose it again for racist comments towards another player which makes me wonder, if Terry is found innocent (by some miracle) whether he will get the captaincy again or whether this time he's lost it for good. Also I suppose the difference between Giggs and Terry is whilst neither are role models off the pitch, atleast Giggs is a role model on it. Who else should Pierce select? The only other experienced leader there is Bellamy and he's hardly the most inspiring and isn't exactly an angel off the field either. Can't really say I disagree with the decision.
