Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has taken a little dig at the quality of Premier League football these days, saying he would rather watch a non-league game on the weekend.
Scholes, who made 718 appearances for the Red Devils during his playing career, is now a football pundit and also co-owner in non-league side Salford City, along with his fellow 'Class of 92' teammates.
The former England international admitted in a new book Class of 92: Out of our League that he prefers to go watch Salford play on the weekends, as the entertainment level is better than in the English top flight.
"I probably do enjoy watching Salford more," Scholes writes in his new book.
"I don’t know if it’s as much that I don’t like the hassle of going to the game, getting in, sitting in traffic. Going to Salford, I park up behind the goal and get out of my car.
"In the Premier League in the last two years, have I really seen a game of high quality? A game that I’ve thought: “Wow!” It’s difficult to think of any.
"I genuinely get more enjoyment from watching even my son’s team, Royter Town. It’s like a men’s team, but he’s 16. He started playing a few games for them last season. I went to watch him once, it was 5-4. It’s just entertainment.
"There’s some good players, really good players, but it’s not always the best for quality."
The 41-year-old played 66 times for England and managed to score 14 goals in all competitions.
