Edwin van der Sar believes the phenomenal achievements of Ryan Giggs will never be equalled.
The Manchester United stalwart was named PFA Player of the Year on Sunday, the first time he has taken that particular prize in a trophy-laden career.
During a remarkable 17-year stay at Old Trafford the Welsh winger has won 10 Premier League titles, two European Cups, four FA Cups, three League Cups and various other accolades.
He is also closing in on 800 appearances for the Red Devils, with Wednesday's UEFA Champions League clash with Arsenal expected to mark the moment he reaches that landmark.
At 35-years-old he is showing no signs of slowing down either and continues to set the standard for others to follow.
He is a true legend of the modern game and his United team-mate Van der Sar expects his records to stand the test of time.
"It would be hard to beat that record," said the veteran Dutchman.
"There are so many changes now with transfers and everything else and Ryan started out early.
"You will not see anything like that in future.
"And the thing is he is still going strong. It is as though he is only 31."
He added: "It is a joy to see how he trains as well as plays.
"How he controls the ball, how he sees a pass and the runs he makes. He can read a game and adjust the way we play.
"He shows such dedication every day and sets the example for everyone."
