Man Utd icon Scholes: Beckham goal better than Rooney's

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes insists Wayne Rooney's wonder goal at West Ham United wasn't the club's best of modern times.

Scholes said that David Beckham's goal from the half-way line against Wimbledon in 1996 was better than Rooney's long-range volley in a 2-0 win at West Ham at the weekend.

"They are both great goals," Scholes said. "Wayne's is probably a little bit more difficult because it is a volley and a harder technique. I'd probably still stick with Beckham's goal because It looked a more beautiful goal. But they are two unbelievable players and two unbelievable goals."
