Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has revealed the two players he considers as the best he played with during his time at Old Trafford.
The Welshman enjoyed a hugely successful career with the Red Devils, winning 34 major trophies and scoring 161 goals in 927 appearances between 1991 and 2014.
He also played alongside some of the club’s biggest legends during that time, including Eric Cantona, Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney, and he has now named the two players who he believes were his most talented teammates.
Speaking on the MUTV Group Chat, cited on Football 365, Giggs said: “The best player I played with is Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Obviously he was only there for a short space of time and he was brilliant for Manchester United and then went on to do even better elsewhere.”
Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 appearances for United and was awarded the Ballon D’or for his sensational performances in the 2007/08 season, when he helped Sir Alex Ferguson’s side claim both the Premier League and Champions League.
Unsurprisingly, the other player Giggs named is a one who featured heavily during United’s era of dominance and is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders to have graced the Premier League.
He added: “Scholesy is the best player I’ve played with at Manchester United. You’ve all seen it in training – you couldn’t get near him.
“His brain was just quicker than everyone else, his range of passing, nasty.
“You think you’ve got him and he’ll just pop it off and give it the little feint. He was just brilliant in training.”
Scholes spent his entire career at United, donning the red shirt 709 times, and was named in the PFA Team of the Year on two occasions.
He now works as a TV pundit, although did recently have an ill-fated spell as manager of his hometown club Oldham Athletic, leaving the role after just 31 days in charge.
