The Best Quotes Used To Describe The Legend: Paul Scholes

Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes is one of the greatest distributors of the ball we have seen at the club.

His quiet personality and no nonsense attitude on the field is something we as a club miss.

Red Devil took some time to compile a list of quotes from fellow footballers and legends, which described the little ginger magician's ability.

"If he was playing with me, I would have scored so many more." -Pele

"My toughest opponent? Scholes of Manchester. He is the complete midfielder." - Zinedine Zidane

"I’m star-struck when I see Paul Scholes because you never see him. On the pitch you can’t catch him. Off the pitch he disappears." - Luis Figo

"I’m not the best, Paul Scholes is." - Edgar Davids

"In the last 15 to 20 years, the best central midfielder that I have seen – the most complete – is Scholes. I have spoken with Xabi Alonso about this many times. Scholes is a spectacular player who has everything. He can play the final pass, he can score, he is strong, he never gets knocked off the ball and he doesn’t give possession away. If he had been Spanish then maybe he would have been valued more." - Xavi

"The player in the Premiership I admire most? Easy – Scholes." - Patrick Viera

"An amazingly gifted player who remained an unaffected human being." - Roy Keane

"Out of everyone at Manchester United, I would pick out Scholes, he is the best midfielder of his generation. I would had loved to play alongside him." - Pep Guardiola

"At La Masia his name was mentioned a lot. He’s a teacher." - Lionel Messi
