Paul Scholes - I don't see Manchester United challenging in Premier League

15 Août, 2018, 14:10 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Paul Scholes has left himself out of his best Manchester United XI consisting of players he played with and opted to include David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Roy Keane in midfield instead.

The former England global represented the Reds Devils for 20 years, and made more than 700 appearances for the Manchester club.

The former midfielder selected Peter Schmeichel between the sticks ahead of Netherlands global Edwin van der Sar.

Denis Irwin was selected ahead of Patrice Evra at left-back, while Rio Ferdinand and Jaap Stam edged out Nemanja Vidic in the centre-half berths. "A special player. A sensational free-kick taker".

"He's such an angry man but when he's playing well, that anger comes out", Scholes said.

Up front, the ex-playmaker went with Los Blancos' top goalscorer ever in Cristiano Ronaldo, United's record scorer Wayne Rooney and Ruud van Nistelrooy.

"A [Cristiano Ronaldo] special, special talent. What he and [Lionel] Messi have done is just different, I don't think you'll see it again".

"When you look at Manchester City, possibly Liverpool, I don't think they have the quality of those two teams at the minute", Scholes told Sky Sports.

"I just don't see United getting closer to City".

Scholes has recently provided a stinging critique of the current setup at United under Jose Mourinho, insisting they are some way off of challenging for the title.

Scholes added: "Liverpool have made some really good signings". City are a really good side, great manager, some great players, a way of playing that they all know about.

'So I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see them challenging for the league this year'.
