You have to love Dimitar Berbatov and the way he waxes poetic about his United team-mate. He’s as good as they get when it comes to a midfielder that possess both class and vision — two things that are a must when playing in Sir Alex’s system. To put it plainly, he’s one of the all-time greats, and for right now, Berbatov is just happy to be a pawn in his presence.
Berbatov, who scored the second goal, says it is a joy to play in the same team as Scholes. “Nobody else in the world can play the way he does,” he said. “The passes he produces all over the field and the way he changes the game is brilliant.
“Every manager would like him. But luckily, he is here and playing with us.” (The Times Online)
Scholes is an automatic choice on any all-time Manchester United starting XI. Whilst he doesn’t have the big name of a Rooney or a Ronaldo, Scholes has quietly gone about his business doing what was asked of him and doing it extremely well. Like a fine wine, he’s only gotten better with age and experience. I’m sure United supporters would agree that he’s one of the main reasons why the club continues to succeed every year.
