THE steward who nabbed Ryan Giggs from Manchester City and took him to United paid the Welsh legend £1 for every goal he scored – even until the end of his playing career.
Old Trafford icon Giggs has revealed that Harold Wood would pay him a pound every time the ball hit the back of the net as an incentive to play well.
Wood poached Giggs when he was just 13-years-old from under the nose of rivals City.
Sir Alex Ferguson signed the winger up for United on his 14th birthday in 1987, and the rest is history.
Giggs won 13 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues and four FA Cups during a 24-year stint in United’s first team.
He scored 168 goals in 963 games before turning his hand to management in 2014.
