Manchester United legend Paul Scholes names his three toughest midfield opponents

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has named Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira as one of his three toughest opponents when he is was playing actively.

His other two options came as a surprise to many having played football at the highest level. The Englishman picked former academy teammate Robbie Savage and the late Papa Bouba-Diop as his other options in midfield.

“When I played central midfield I like to go into games thinking: ‘I just want to have all the time in the world here, just nobody around me, just find a little bit of space and pass the ball around,’ Scholes’ told BBC Radio 5’s Savage Social show last year.Information Guide Nigeria

“Then you play against people like you [Savage]. An absolute nuisance, trying to close you down dead quick. I don’t want that, I just want it nice and relaxed.

“The way I played I didn’t really have to beat people or be stronger, quicker than the other person.

“I suppose Patrick Vieira, you play against him, he is so long, he is so big. You think you’ve got the ball, and the next minute he nicks it over your head, he was a clever player as well.

“There’s one more that people won’t think of. We used to play against Portsmouth. Do you remember Papa Bouba Diop? Big, massive. They used to call him ‘the Wardrobe.’

“You get involved physically with him and you’re wasting your time. I always found him awkward to play against. He wasn’t a Vieira, of course, he wasn’t, but he still had talent.”

Scholes, who amassed 719 appearances, 152 goals, and 25 trophies during his 19-years at Old Trafford, explained that they made the list as they were the ones he struggled playing his own game against the most.JAMB Result
