Paul Scholes


English football player who has spent his entire career at Manchester United.
Paul Scholes
"When he 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 him once 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."
Scholes quotes
"Hes the best midfielder Ive ever seen. He can pass, score goals with his left, right, his head he can do anything. And he can beat a player too, plus he loves to nutmeg you! He's unbelievable."
Scholes
"Paul Scholes would have been one of my first choices for putting together a great team that goes to show how highly I have always rated him. An all-round midfielder who possesses quality and character in abundance."




Scholes Paul quotes
"He is not as good a tackler as you - but I really like him. He's a little boy, but the power in that shot... he can really shoot."
Scholes Paul
Im star-struck when I see Paul Scholes because you never see him. On the pitch you cant catch him. Off the pitch he disappears.
Paul Scholes quotes
"Why isnt he playing for England? It is crazy. Only in England. Scholes is a great, great player. So experienced and still, for me, one of the best in the world in midfield. Manchester United are lucky to have him.
Paul Scholes
"No celebrity bullshit, no self promotion - an amazingly gifted player who remained an unaffected human being."
Scholes Paul quotes
If he was playing with me, I would score so many more.
Scholes
"I am a big admirer of Paul Scholes, he is one of the best players of his generation and I honestly think [Wesley] Sneijder is the only player in the world capable of replacing him."
Scholes Paul
"England have lost their best player."
Paul Scholes
"I tell anyone who asks me Scholes is the best English player."




Paul Scholes quotes
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.
Paul Scholes
I just love Paul Scholes. Hes been the best footballer in our division for the last ten years. Hes a a wonderful player. If they get hold of him and stop him from playing I think Chelsea will beat them."
Scholes quotes
"Fans in Spain rate him very highly and I admire him a huge amount."
Scholes Paul
"Paul is football crazy. I've followed him since I took his first-year team all the way through. And while Paul is not very socially confident, give him a group of lads, a football and he's certainly not quiet."
Scholes Paul quotes
"Without any doubt the best player in the Premiership has to be Scholes. He knows how to do everything, and he is one who directs the way his team plays. On top of that, he has indestructible mental strength and he is a genuine competitor."
Paul Scholes
"I have no hesitation in putting a name to the embodiment of all that I think is best about football. It's Paul Scholes. Many great players have worn the shirt of Manchester United. Players I worshipped, then lost with my youth in Munich. Players like Denis Law and George Best who I enjoyed so much as team-mates and now, finally, players I have watched closely in the Alex Ferguson era. And in so many ways Scholes is my favourite. I love his nous and conviction that he will find a way to win, to make the killer pass or produce the decisive volley. When a game reaches a vital phase, these qualities seem to come out of his every pore. He's always on the ball, always turning on goal. He's always looking to bring other people into the action and if he loses possession you think he must be ill."
Paul Scholes quotes
I want to pass like him. Who taught him how to do that?
Paul Scholes
"The best illustration I can give of his talent is that at Manchester United there was always a possession drill in training designed to develop our passing ability, which might be three players against another three players, or six versus six, or nine versus nine. But no matter what the numbers were, the side with Paul Scholes on their team would always win by keeping the most possession."
Scholes Paul
"One of the greatest football brains Manchester United has ever had."
