Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has taken the stand in court to defend Ryan Giggs on his assault charge.
According to The Independent, the 80-year-old told the court that he never saw Giggs lose his temper and spoke of the relationship he had with his former player.
The Scotsman, who won 13 Premier League titles during his time at Old Trafford, told Manchester Crown Court that Giggs had a 'fantastic temperament.' Sir Alex stated:
“To have a career as long as he had in a difficult position, in terms of energy, he fulfilled everything we ever wished for.”
He stated that the former Wales international was 'without doubt the best example we had at the club' and that 'everyone looked at Ryan Giggs as the number one.'
When Ferguson was asked by Giggs' barrister Chris Daw QC if he had ever seen him 'lose his temper or become aggressive,' the iconic manager replied: 'no.'
The 48-year-old former Wales manager is currently on trial for the alleged assault of ex-girlfriend Kate Greville.
