Natural talent, zero ego. Legend.
Zero ego? Did u miss the bit about him refusing to play bcos he was left out 1 game?? 😂😂 Love Scholesy but no players at that level have zero ego mate
@Glenn F. It’s completely his ego lol let’s not be silly. It was his ego telling him I’m not playing with the reserves & kids im way too good for that. Come on now

Zero ego???
@Glenn F. Can’t really be stubborn in this context without an Ego behind it haha but yeah no worries. All top players have egos tbh it’s a necessary trait for an elite athlete tbh.
Dusan Vukicevic
@M LOOSE fair point, but you have to have little ego to make it to those levels

I wrote to scholes around 2008/2009 as a 5 year old, he was mine and my dads favourite player 2 weeks later I got a signed picture and a note on the back. Still have it to this day and I’ll keep it forever. Cheers scholesy.

Scholes is ‘boring’ and I love him for it. No non-sense answers, always straight to the point. Very honest about his stupidities. Just get on with it, no drama. As a United supporter it was his shirt I always wanted, not Beckham, not Ronaldo, not Rooney, not Giggs. Just that No.18 shirt.

The best interview in Overlap, and I'm not saying that just cause I'm an United fan. It had it all, info, humor and u just can see the good vibe these have between each other. They grew together playing football, from the academy up to the first team, a United team in which time, the players were like a family and u can feel that thing in this interview. So happy I grew watching these lads play for the team I love and started watching football as a kid cause of Man Utd. Such a good interview, really enjoyed it.

There's a reason United were the most successful team in EPL history, this man. He made it all happen in the centre of the park, passing, vision, shooting, play making. Its no coincidence we haven't won the EPL since the year he retired. He was the constant in the middle of the park.

My favourite player of all time. There will never be another like him.

@Comp just to reply to you on this subject of players being asked about teammates and opposition players by journos in interviews. Zidane also said that David Beckham pirlo seedorf Edgar David's Deschamps where best midfielders he played with or against. Xavi: xavi also said that inesta was the best midfielder he too mentioned zidane seedorf and Guardiola believe it or not as the best midfielders. If utd fans or whatever want to believe scholes was the best midfielder of all time that's thier prerogative however wrong it clearly is but you have the right as do others to laugh at that suggestion .

Two of the best that the UK has produced. Scoles, is one of the most technically gifted players ever full stop. Very intelligent too. It is peculiar to hear Paul talk about himself in this way. Very humble. Supremely talented. Neville, 100% determination and heart and work, but little in the way of natural talent, but at his peak he was the best right back in the country by miles and miles and miles and who would you pick in world football ahead of him. Excellent players, and I am an Arsenal fan. Grrrrr, despised and admired these guys in equal measure when they were players.

Kevin de Bruyne is basically Scholes' spiritual successor. They're not exactly mirror images of each other in terms of what they provide, but they're share many traits. They are both two of the best midfielders of their eras, they're both a little grumpy, interspersedly humorous and have that timid amicability that's largely uncharacteristic for footballers.

The best midfield performance I ever saw in my life was Paul Scholes against Newcastle at St James Park - just incredible. His football brain was incredible.
Taxonomic nomen dubium
Underrated. If England just made a final with the national team i think people would have have him even higher. I hated him as an Arsenal fan, but now 20 years later i just cant say anything bad about the man. Quality and class act.

Peter Burlin 27 日 前
If England just played Scholes and Carrick in the middle (and put Lampard and Gerrard on the bench) they might just had. Saying this as a fellow Arsenal fan. Edit. Maybe id put Stevie G at RB ahead of Gary eh
Taxonomic nomen dubium
@Peter Burlin i firmly believe England could have went further if it was not for Brazil in 02, simply to good and in 04. But after that, each and every coach had no balance, threw all the big names in there because they were stars and hoped for the best. I see No problem with leaving Gerrard and Lampard on the bench, Scholes imo was better than both controlling the pace, unfortunately all the coaches post Svennis was not able to get the best out of him. But to be fair also, i strongly believe that there were harder to face nations that england had to face post groupstage back then, than what it is now. Nothing to be ashamed of, but i felt that Scholes reputation would have been higher if England had managed a final or even won it, that is why a % wont give him the status of likes such as Pirlo, Zidane, Xavi, maybe Modrics.

The true quality of a player is that they always seem to have space, his awareness was unbelievable, I saw him regularly outclass the best with one and two touch football, they couldn’t get near him but his passing range was outrageous. It’s a scandal England didn’t make the most of his talent. Jogba could have been him but wasn’t a born winner like Scholesy. One of the greats

Such a brilliant, brilliant interview Paul Scholes is so humble in his ability, it’s the fact he couldn’t give a toss which makes him even more special. Arguably the best attacking midfielder in the world during his time, his peers all respect him and all of them put Scholesy as the number one midfield, quite remarkable!

@Jack Davies-Downes you mad bro?? 🧐🧐🧐
Jack Davies-Downes
@Prateek Chauhan No I’m not mad. Zidane did bits for France and had some class moments. But name a consistent period of time in which he performed every single name? Players like Scholes had brilliant moments alongside great flashes such as the Barca goal. Players like Zidane only have those flashes like the volley but that’s what they get remembered for which makes us remember them being better than they actually were. Scholes was consistent for united for years and was part of a football domination, Zidane never had that- go look at the stats and come back. Not to mention the fact that Zidane never even touched the premier league

Informative and real about how he was early in his career and how he found professionalism. Ben Foster has a story about his own journey to professionalism; how he went on loan to Watford, wasn't professional with his schedule, and how the manager sent a report card with all his behavior good and bad back to Sir Alex and how it was a turning point. Some great lessons from these men.

Watched him come through from the youth team into the first team, and always knew he was special, even though he was a striker back then. Never knew he would become such a baller in midfield though!!

What a no nonsense, humble human being and simply put the greatest English midfield player to ever grace a pitch

Looking at him, its impossible to imagine how incredible this man was as a player, i feel bad for those who never watched him in his prime.

One of the greatest and most humble players ever to play for United.

Great interview - honest, funny, self-deprecating and genuine. Scholes you are a legend and even know-all Neville graciously took a backseat. United,united,united!

Scholesy is to funny without even trying! His humour reminds me of Karl Pilkington lol

As a Bradford City fan, I’ll never forget that goal he scored. Most of the stadium applauded it. Absolute class player

Brilliant. I remember the Brazilian Ronaldo getting an ovation at Old Trafford when subbed after his hat trick. Will always remember being there.

It looks like the English public are very respectful when it comes to these interviews but if I was on vacation in England and saw these two Legends walking about I will lose my shit.

What an absolute G. So funny with that really honest but then also naturally guarded and suspicious thing he's got going on. Never trying to big himself up or show off. Quite sweet natured and kind but with that working class 'what u looking at' vibe. Class

Especially enjoyed this one as a united fan. Don't understand how Neville didn't adore Ruud, he's my favourite striker for united, never used to miss. And you can tell how good he actually was by the way Scholesy talks about him
Philippe Palmer
that's the first time I've seen Paul Scholes in an interview completely open up and yet he's still an enigma.Zinedine Zidane was once asked “what does it feel like to be the best player in the world?” he reportedly replied: “I don't know, ask Paul Scholes.”

Scholes and keane, what united missed the most. Scholes, legend of the game.

Really enjoyed listening to both these interviews with Scholes , to keep your feet on the ground after all that success is pretty impressive . Just very honest and no bullshit , could have listened to them a lot longer , and i'm definitely not a united fan.
What a legend. Football misses people like this these days.

A Liverpool fan here, but you can't hate Scholesy. These guys didn't live a double life - totally dedicated to their career. Can't remember any player making a contribution coming out of retirement as he did.
gresley mccaslin
love the straight forward seriousness of scholes..as a City fan i had to TAKE IT ON THE CHIN WITH UNITED BEING SO GOOD..BUT NOW ITS GREAT TO HEAR THEIR THOUGHTS AND REACTIONS TO HOW IT WAS...GREAT SHOW..
Edwin 年 前
Diego Forlan was asked in an interview down in Argentina who was the best player he played alongside during his tenure with Man Utd… yep he said Scholes without even hesitating which is mad when you consider all the talent Utd had during that era Van Nistelrooy, Beckham, young CR7, Keano, Giggs. Just goes to show Scholes’ insane class

Isn't it mad all that talent at Utd and people claim it doesn't help him look better. All that talent, so much of it that the fans and players never, ever, voted for him as their best player. Rose tinted glasses on. Some serious cognitive dissonance amongst Utd fans. The palpable copium on display is desperate.
