Cruyff humbled by Man Utd legend Scholes

Jordi Cruyff has revealed how he was humbled by the genius of former Manchester United teammate Paul Scholes.

Cruyff wrote in the Daily Mail: "The United attitude was so good. There was a week where we had three games and Paul Scholes scored in all three, maybe six or seven goals in total. I was looking at him in the dressing room the next day and he was so calm in the dressing room, completely normal, as though he'd done nothing all week.

"I said, 'Jesus, if I'd scored seven goals in three games, I'd be walking in with a new suit! They would have had to make the doors wider because my ego would not have fit through anymore!' I learned a lot of these small lessons at that time."
