It’s family first as Ryan Giggs' brother responded to comparisons with Bukayo Saka years after his affair with his brother’s wife.

In a recent social media exchange, Rhodri Giggs, brother of Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs, appeared to jump to his brother's defense amid comparisons with Arsenal's rising star, Bukayo Saka.

The discussion ignited after an Arsenal fan account on X formerly known as Twitter, pointed out Saka's impressive goal and assist record, which surpassed Giggs's best season stats.

With a collection including 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League trophies, four League Cups, and four FA Cups, Ryan Giggs' achievements are indeed remarkable.

The brother of the former Wales coach simply responded the post with, "Good luck Bukayo," leaving many wondering about his intentions behind the post.

Nonetheless, it remains to be seen if Rhodri was defending his covetous brother’s legacy, or perhaps subtly challenging Saka to aim for similar success.

While Saka's early career success is undeniable, Ryan Giggs' status as a Manchester United icon remains unchallenged.

Despite being snubbed for induction into the Premier League Hall of Fame multiple times, Giggs remains one of the greatest wingers in the history of English football.
