What they said

“He was the absolute perfect player and no matter how many great players we have had in the past at Manchester United, Paul sits in the great pantheon of those players." - Sir Alex Ferguson 

“He’s always one of those people others talk about. Even playing at Real Madrid, the players always say to me, 'What’s he like?' They respect him as a footballer and see him as the ultimate." – David Beckham

“Without any doubt the best player in the Premier League has to be Scholes. He knows how to do everything, and he is one who directs the way his team plays. On top of that, he has indestructible mental strength and he is a genuine competitor.” – Thierry Henry
