How Manchester United could do with a player like Paul Scholes right now.
The legendary midfielder played more than 700 matches for the Old Trafford club, helping them to win 11 league titles, three FA Cups and two Champions Leagues.
In short, Scholes is one of the greatest players to have ever played for the club.
And that’s saying something considering the world-class players that have graced the Theatre of Dreams.
By the time he hung up his boots, Scholes had won 25 trophies for the club.
Of course, he was helped by the incredible talent he was surrounded by during his 20 seasons at the club.
But who were the best players Scholes played with from 1993-2013?
Well, on MUTV, Scholes was asked to name the best XI he played with at Man Utd.
That must have been an extremely difficult task but the midfielder managed it - and even left himself out.
Scholes opted for a 4-3-3 formation and here is his very special XI.
Goalkeeper | Peter Schmeichel
Right-back | Gary Neville
Left-back | Denis Irwin
Centre-back | Jaap Stam
Centre-back | Rio Ferdinand
Midfield | David Beckham
Midfield | Roy Keane
Midfield | Ryan Giggs
Forward | Wayne Rooney
Forward | Cristiano Ronaldo
Forward | Ruud van Nistelrooy
Yeah, that’s not bad.
Then on the bench, Scholes had: Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke, Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Could do with a defender or two on the bench, mind.
SCHOLES ON THE CURRENT UNITED SIDE
While Scholes and his United side were there or there abouts every season, he simply doesn’t see this current squad under Jose Mourinho’s guidance winning their first title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
"When you look at Manchester City, possibly Liverpool, I don't think they [United] have the quality of those two teams at the minute," Scholes admitted. Liverpool have made some really good signings. United finished above them last season.
"I just don't see United getting closer to City. City are a really good side, great manager, some great players, a way of playing that they all know about and Manchester United seem to be not too sure what's going on.
"You don't really know the team, you don't really know the players, you don't know how they're going to perform from one week to the next. So I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see them challenging for the league this year."
