Paul Scholes has been widely praised by fans and foe. Time after time, legends of the game have come out and praised Scholes: Thierry Henry, Arsene Wenger, Zidane to name a few. When one watches him play it becomes evident why so much praise is heaped on him.
Scholes is Manchester United through and through, having played for no other club throughout his illustrious career. Scholes has dedicated his career to Manchester United and still remains a crucial player for them. Even at the age of 36, he continues to be a vital cog in Manchester United’s midfield and still manages to have a good impact, but his performances have gone down a bit with age and he has grown injury prone.
At his best his passing, technique and tenacity are unmatched. Scholes has led Manchester United to several trophies and has 9 Premier League champions’ medals and has lifted the UEFA Champions League twice with the Red Devils. In United’s UCL triumph in 2008, he scored the only goal of the semifinal against Barcelona to take them through to the finals.
Scholes at his best can destruct any team, and this dedicated, hardworking and gifted player is one of the finest the Premier League and this world has witnessed.
