Giggs, Scholes and Ronaldinho make Indian Futsal debuts

Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Ronaldinho and more legends made their Indian Premier Futsal League debuts as the competition got underway for the first time in Chennai.

Giggs, who ended his 29-year association with Manchester United this month, decided this tournament would be his first return to football after leaving Old Trafford.

The Welshman got back to doing what he does best: winning! His Mumbai side triumphed 4-2 against a Chennai team containing the world futsal player of the year, Falcao.

Futsal is right up Ronaldinho's street, but his flicks and tricks weren't enough as his Goa side were defeated by Kolkata.

Other famous faces to appear at the inaugural edition of the tournament include former Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo and Real Madrid legend Michel Salgado.
