Man United: Ryan Giggs picks Paul Scholes over Cristiano Ronaldo

Man United legend Ryan Giggs told Premier League Productions, “Paul Scholes is probably the best United player that I played with. People always ask ‘who’s the best player you’ve played with’ and probably [ability-wise] Cristiano for what he’s gone on to do with Real Madrid, Juventus and Portugal. But the best United player I played with was Paul Scholes for all the reasons I’ve just given you. There was no other player like him. I felt on my day that I could do what most footballers could do but I could never do what Scholesey did. I think when Scholesey first got promoted he was pretty quiet and let his football do the talking but you always wanted to be on Scholesey’s team in possession and usually in games as well. As soon as Scholesey got the ball and turned you made a run, he didn’t even need to look. He’d be playing the ball exactly where you’d want it.”
