Eriksson said of the Manchester United star: "He has had an amazing season; that is the right word. He has always been a very good footballer but seems to get better and better. He has pace and technique he can score goals and is a good header of the ball. I congratulate him on his tally.
"If football experts were picking the best player in the world he would be one big candidate today and he was the difference between United and Bolton in midweek."
