4. Paul Scholes

Paul Scholes was widely respected by all of the world’s top footballers. The likes of Xavi, Zinedine Zidane, Pele, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and many more all hailed Old Trafford’s unassuming Ginger Prince before he hung up his boots - for the second time - in 2013.

Very few players could walk away from football and then come out of retirement six months later to play against a star-studded Manchester City side, but then again Scholes was no ordinary player.

For pure natural ability, Scholes is arguably the best of the Premier League era. Nobody could get near him, his brain was simply too quick for everyone else’s.

As well as being a pass-master, Scholes was also a brilliant natural finisher, and scored 107 goals in 499 league matches. How Manchester United could do with a peak-Scholes right now.
