Lionel Messi – He is an inspiration.
Pele – If he was playing with me, I would have scored so many more.
Seedorf – I’m not the best, Paul Scholes is.
Cristiano Ronaldo – He hit a tree with a ball from 50m in one try, I couldn’t do it in even 10 times.
Zinedine Zidane – You rarely come across the complete footballer, Scholes is as close to it as you can get, he is my favorite player.
Sir Alex Ferguson – He is one of ‘the’ great players.
Xabi Alonso: “I’ve still got Scholes’ shirt at home which I swapped with him. When I was at LFC he was one of the players I liked most.”
Ian Holloway: “When Scholes passes the ball it stays passed. The ball goes exactly where he wants it to. I have always loved him for that. I played against himonce or twice and he is an absolute genius. He is a role model for anyone who wants to play football. He is a joy to watch. In fact, I wish he was 21, then I could see his career all over again.”
