What a terrific little player he is. He must be one United’s best players but he never seems to get in the headlines that often. He’s a shy person and avoids cameras and interviews but on the pitch he’s totally different.
He scored two goals last night against Panathinaikos at Old Trafford, to seal an important win for United. He claimed that his second goal was the best he’s ever scored. It showed what a great player he was, he had the vision to see the goalkeeper of his line and the precision to execute the chip inch perfectly.
However, I don’t think that’s his best goals he’s scored better one than that. I’d say for technique and ability the goals against Bradford was better. It was a brilliant volley straight as an arrow into the bottom corner.
I would say that for goal scoring ability and all round ability Paul Scholes is one of the best midfield players around.
He also plays exceptionally well for England and has a excellent goal scoring record.
