Manchester United had a glorious run for over two decades under the leadership of Alex Ferguson. The Scottish manager led United to the acme of success when he won the treble in the 1998-99 season. He helped the club win a plethora of silverware over a career spanning 26 years.

Under his tutelage, there have been several players who joined as a teenager and then left the club as a legend winning numerous trophies during their careers. One of them is Ryan Giggs.

Which player has won the most trophies in the history of Manchester United?

Giggs joined the club at just 17 years. He went on to make 963 appearances for the club, a record that stands to date. During his lengthy career at United, he has won 34 trophies, making him the most decorated player of all time for Manchester United. He won 13 Premier League titles, nine Community Shields, two Champions League winners' medals, four FA Cups, three League Cups and one Fifa Club World Cup, Intercontinental Cup, and UEFA Super Cup apiece.

Giggs' teammate Paul Scholes comes second in the list with 25 titles to his name.
