Carrick thrilled to be compared to Man Utd legend Scholes

Michael Carrick was chuffed to hear a song made up by Manchester United fans likening him to Paul Scholes.

The United supporters sang, 'hard to believe it's not Scholes', during the 2-0 win at QPR on the weekend in regards to the 31-year old midfielders passing range.

Although Carrick feels the fans might be slightly taking the mickey, he admitted he would take the comparison to the Old Trafford great.

"Scholesy is a legend, so I don't know whether it is tongue-in-cheek but it is a nice song and I will take that," said Carrick.

"It is always good to be compared to players like that.

"Paul is as good as it gets and has been throughout his career.

"To train alongside him and have the chance to learn every day has been something I have tried to make the most of.

"It has helped me bring my own game on whether he knows it or not and that has been a big help."
