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.
I’m not the best, Paul Scholes is.
Edgar Davids, in his prime
Out of everyone at Manchester United, I would pick out Scholes – he is the best midfielder of his generation. I would have loved to have played alongside him.
The player in the Premiership I admire most? Easy – Scholes.
I can’t understand why Scholes has never won the player of the year award. He should have won it long ago. Maybe it’s because he doesn’t seek the limelight like some of the other ‘stars’.
You missed one -
"I was so busy doing all his tackling for him that I convinced everyone into thinking that he was better than he really ever was..."
And Keane should be in that team over Viera. He was magnificent at everything someone in his position should be to justify a world class label.
