Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan has revealed that Paul Scholes is the best player he's ever played alongside.
Scholes, who retired from the game in 2013, certainly has an admirer in the Uruguayan, who hailed the former England international as his all-time best team-mate.
Forlan may well have played alongside the likes of Ryan Giggs, Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez, but it appears that no one quite compares to Scholes.

The duo, of course, spent two and a half years together at Old Trafford and the Red Devils legend clearly made a lasting impression on Forlan.
As relayed by Goal.com, when Fox Sports Radio asked Forlan to name the best team-mate he's played with, he responded by saying: “Paul Scholes. The ginger fella was 30 metres from goal, he grabbed [the ball] and hit it at goal like it was nothing, leaving everyone surprised.”
Let's be honest, Forlan's selection isn't exactly surprising. Scholes went about his business in Manchester with a touch of genius.
The 40-year-old wowed the Old Trafford faithful time-and-time again throughout his remarkable career and will forever be remembered as an icon up in the terraces.
Incredible strikes against Barcelona and Aston Villa will undoubtedly live long in the memory of United supporters, who won't forget the "ginger fella" in a hurry.
