Ryan and Becks could re-unite at Olympics

Two Manchester United legends could compete for Team GB at the Olympics

Ryan Giggs and David Beckham vital to Man Utd's success when they played together

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs might play with superstar David Beckham during this summer's Olympics.

Ryan, who started his career at United 20 years ago, says that like Becks he is available for selection for the tournament.

"Becks is obviously a friend and he remains a great player," said Giggs.

"If [playing for GB] was to be, it'd be great. I started my playing career with Becks in the [United] youth team. Twenty years later, to be still doing that would be great."
