Ryan Giggs and Javier Zanetti - A Legendary Bromance

Ryan Giggs and Javier Zanetti

Manchester United Legend Ryan Giggs and former Inter Milan star Javier Zanetti got together today on Twitter to discuss their careers.

It's rare these days when players spend the entirety, or at least the bulk of their careers at one club. Players in the modern era change clubs more times than Jennifer Lopez swaps husbands, and yet like a rich socialite they're always batting their eyelids at the next suitor waving a pile of cash, who is also whispering sweet nothings about Champions League football.

Loyalty is a word that most players have no use for, but Giggs and Zanetti were no ordinary players. A chapter in football history closed in 2014 with the retirement of these two legends.

The former Welsh winger, Giggs, is the most decorated player in English football history. Spending his entire 24 year career at Old Trafford, Giggs amassed a record 13 League Titles to go along with his two Champions League wins and various domestic cups.

Zanetti, meanwhile, played 19 seasons for Italian giants Inter Milan after starting his career in Argentina. One of the few non-Italian captains in Serie A, Zanetti captained Internazionale from 1999 until the end of his career this past spring. The Argentine right back won 5 Serie A titles, and a Champions League crown in 2009/2010 as part of a historic treble.
