Never one to bottle his emotions, Paul Scholes has once again launched a scathing attack on the quality of English football.
Very rarely does the former Manchester United midfielder have something good to say about the Premier League, instead criticising it for how it doesn't compare to the likes of La Liga and the Bundesliga.
According to Scholes, only three world-class players reside at English clubs: Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne.

Clearly, he's never watched Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Mesut Ozil or Eden Hazard play.
In a must-read column for the Guardian, Scholes revealed how he doesn't find the Premier League interesting anymore and that Juventus would "beat any team in this league".

He said: "I don’t find elite football as interesting to watch anymore, especially in England.
"You hear about people saying English football’s the best football there is around. I think Spain’s by far the best league. Germany has better teams.
"In Italy, probably the strength in depth isn’t great. They talk about Italy being a bad league but I don’t think English people look at it. They say it’s boring. No chance.
"The Juventus team would beat any team in this league. They came up to Manchester City and beat them easy.
"But we have this interpretation of the Italian league that it’s rubbish. They only try to defend. No chance."
Scholes ultimately blames the sheer amount of money associated with the Premier League.
"It’s all about money and sponsorship in England these days rather than football, rather than entertainment," he added.
"And I don’t think that’s just from the top teams either. I think it goes right down through the league. I know there is pressure on managers, but styles of play become so negative because managers are frightened of losing their jobs.
"If you lose three or four games on the trot obviously you’re under big pressure and you’re sacked and that makes them think: “Right, do we need results or do we need to find a way of playing to entertain people?”
"It’s rubbish. It spoils English football.
"I’d probably be sacked after five games if I was a manager, wouldn’t I? I really don’t know if I’ll ever manage. I’ve done my Uefa B licence. I haven’t done the A licence."
